Event Details

Why learn about Graphic Design? Whether it’s in books, on billboards, or even on our food labels, graphic design is everywhere!

In this hands-on learning experience, learners will be introduced to application called Canva, an online graphic design application that helps designers create beautiful work. Learners with an artistic and creative passion will love exploring their skills in a technological way, and will get to discuss how their favourite logos and images were designed and created!

Learners will also have the opportunity to animate their design of choice using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment. They will be introduced to Scratch's amazing online community, sloganed: "Imagine, Program, Share," where they’ll have the opportunity to upload their projects to share with others.

By the end of the workshop, learners will have discovered how to compose elements in visually engaging ways, and experiment with typography and colour theory. Canva’s easy-to-use interface will also encourage them to continue designing outside of the workshop.

Each Graphic Design with Canva & Scratch workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new projects every time!

What will I have learned by the end of this workshop?

  • Create algorithms in Scratch
  • Use colour to communicate an emotion or idea
  • Use symmetry to create balance in my design
  • Use events to control when things happen in my project
  • Use loops to make things happen more than once
  • Use Canva to keep designing, and Scratch to KEEP CODING!
