What is Canva?
Canva is an online resource that makes it easy to design good quality materials for both online and offline use, including flyers, posters and social media assets.
We’ve provided some templates for placards, posters and social media. They've been designed for your ease – all you have to do is just replace the example group’s name with the name of your group.
You can also upload your own images or photos and use Canva to add captions or other designs.
Once you’ve made your design you can download, share and print your materials as you wish.
Go to canva.com and create an account. You’ll need to provide an email address in order to register.
Canva may suggest that you sign up for the "pro" account (which has a fee) but you can skip this and opt for the free version. Once you’re familiar with Canva you may decide you want the added features of a paid account – it's completely up to you.
