Class Experience

Students will learn some graphic design basics along with Canva graphic design program skills in typography, color theory, design, and compilation through hands-on learning projects. 
I use the Canva graphic design program graphic design program on a daily basis, creating multiple designs per day on multiple platforms. I've been a Canva graphic design program user for over 5 years now, and use it for my own online business. I love this graphic design app and love sharing what it can do with students. 

I have been teaching middle school for 28 years. I am also a writing teacher.
 All work is independent, so learners need to pace themselves and remain on a weekly schedule in order to accomplish this course in six weeks. Inside the Outschool classroom, students will see a post that contains a PDF for them to download that contains clickable links to all videos, Slides, and assignments.
Parents, students will need a Canva graphic design program account, which students can sign up through a private guardian account Google login. I also use YouTube videos as well as Kahoot and Pear Deck to make the class more interactive.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Positive feedback will be given for each assignment turned in. If a grade is needed, please contact me via Outschool message.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Your learner will need access to:
Pear Deck (they will get a link for this inside the classroom that makes Google Slides Interactive with questions and responses students type in as they go through the lesson)
Canva graphic design program (free digital design app they can use )
Google Drive (all lesson files, videos, assignments, and other handouts will be linked to this)
Google Docs
Google Forms
Google Slides
Google Links
YouTube embedded videos into Pear Deck, (so other YouTube suggestions do not pop up) - about graphic design. These have been vetted to make sure they do not contain information not suitable for children.
