This is by far one of the neatest tools ever made. I remember back in the day making portfolio pages for college using Microsoft Word. I would insert pictures, designs, Word Art, and spend hours making different pages. This required a lot of creativity to design a page out of thin air. Canva is a IOS app and web based tool that allows users to create beautiful designs with the use of hundreds of already pre-made templates. If you are looking to create your own designs, logos, newsletters, collages, charts, menus, gift certificate, poster, business card, invitation, than this is the place for you. Use your imagination and templates from Canva to make original works of art.
Have your students get creative and design sequential collages, business designs, projects, magazine covers, and so much more. Give your students the power to become a graphic designer with the free tools that Canva has to offer.
Check out the following Canva designs I made in less than 5 minutes. The collage of my daughter was made on my iPad, and the magazine cover promoting my blog was made on my computer.
