Intimidated by Illustrator and Photoshop? We feel you. Join digital designer Alana Ladson and Creative-in-Residence Vicky Blume for an interactive logo design workshop using Canva. Participants will be introduced to the Canva interface and review logo ideas as a group before diving into a logo design hour. No design experience required! Refreshments will be provided.
