My dream came true.
Workshop surprised me. The coordination of the girls, the zest for life and for spreading the message was unbelievable. To be honest, my dream came true. My next dream is to get better at my profession, and maybe to join the girls!

You will learn to:


  • Create a simple CV, business card or a poster using templates (Canva)

  • Work with curves in Inkscape, creating personal mandalas or colouring sheets (Working the Vectors)

  • Edit pictures like a pro and get the most out of your shots (Photo Editing)

Course Content

Canva

You’d like to use graphics software but all you’ve tried is Windows Painting? Then this is the workshop for you. We will teach you how to create your own graphics using the modern templates available in Canva and explain several graphics principles for you to manage even without the templates. You'll find out everything you need to know for creating posters, business cards and CVs. In the end, you will be able to share your designs and export them for printing.

Inkscape – Working the vectors

Bezier curve of the n-th degree for the n+1 control points given... And now seriously. :) The main goal of this workshop is to teach you to work with curves so that you can actually use them. You will create your own design for a T-shirt or a bag print.

We will keep Mr Bezier busy while modifying our faces or creating mandalas. And when all that’s done, we’ll make our own colouring sheets. After the workshop, you’ll get some homework. Practice makes perfect!

Photo Editing

Are there extra legs or arms in your holiday photos? Do you need to rename a ton of images? Brighten them up? Or simply adjust the colours? Let’s get to Photo Editing.

We will show you how to make good images awesome and how to help the not-so-good ones using computer software. Because no one wants the Eiffel tower all slanted and the Leaning Tower of Pisa upright.

UX

At the User Experience (UX) workshop, you'll learn about all the different areas of this field, you'll receive recommendations for books and website that can help you get started and most importantly, you'll try out the entire UX process (quickly) using a practical example.

Note: User Experience is concerned with usability. This doesn't only relate to information technology such as websites, mobile apps or online games. It affects our entire life. A designer thinks about usability so that we don't need to read lengthy user guides and so that we can use things easily.
