Batch of 2023: Workshop on Using Canva for Graphic Design

The second-year students (Batch of 2023), Department of Journalism Lady Shri Ram College for Women attended a workshop ‘How to Use Canva for Graphic Design' on Tuesday, January 25, 2022. The workshop was taken by Ms. Barsha Das, the Design Head of Team Prakriti, Lady Shri Ram College for Women. Ms. Barsha is a student in the Department of Economics and harbors wide experience and expertise in Canva and other digital editing tools. 

The workshop was aimed at enabling students with digital editing & basic illustration and graphic designing skills required by the industry in the online learning mode. 

The use of Canva as a tool to design beautiful invitations, instagram posts, creative posters, powerpoint presentations, among other visual illustrations has helped usher in a revolution for budding designers inculcating extensive photo editing knowledge at a very low cost. The workshop, thus, focused on all aspects of visual editing, from the very basic tools to professional editing hacks and techniques explained in a step by step manner making the information easier to grasp for the students. 

Ms. Barsha went through almost all the features of photo editing through Canva. She also took the time to patiently address all the doubts raised by the students.

The workshop proved to be very interactive, helpful and informative. All the students were grateful to Dr. Vartika Nanda (Teacher-in-Charge) for organizing the insightful and most relevant workshop.
