You Can Do It! Flyer Design for Beginners


6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Event Type

Do you feel like a clip-art captive?

Do experience an irrational fear of fonts?

Let’s work through your design dilemmas and learn to make interesting and attractive event materials using a mixture of media and whatever tools you have.
Get ready to make good graphics!
To get the most out of the workshop, you should bring a current project and your laptop.
  We will learn software tricks and tips, but this is not a photoshop class.  After all, you can make stuff without a computer!  In addition to such programs as Photoshop, Illustrator, Gimp and Word, we will also use scanners, photocopying, collage, and hand illustration.

In this workshop, we will:
-view examples of the good and the bad
-learn basic graphic design principles
-create a clear visual message
-work with different types of media
-make multiple versions of a concept
-review and critique each others’ work
-develop and finalize a design for your project!

The fee for this workshop is $40.

**Regular Sanctuary volunteers may take the workshop free of charge
