We’ve taken on a chunk of your work for you by creating professional-quality lesson plan templates. Simply browse through the collection then select the template that best suits your need or your tastes, then start customizing. Every element on the template can be customized—whether you want to move it around, recolor, resize, delete or replace it. Our intuitive interface makes it easy for you to control your design’s look and feel. Drag and drop shapes, images and texts where you need them to go, resize an element by dragging its edges and change colors by using the color wheel feature found on the toolbar.
As an art teacher, you’re sure to need visual aids to help you teach your subject. Your visual guides, however, need not be confined to your blackboard. With Canva, you can add images and visual cues to help you teach. Are you tackling differences between different art movements such as impressionism, realism, or surrealism? You can upload artworks that exemplify each movement to use as your reference guide. Canva lets you upload your own images and add them to your design. Just go to the “Uploads” tab and drag and drop any PNG, SVG or JPEG file from your computer into Canva.
Did you know that typography can also be a visual cue? Emphasize keywords and salient points by using varying font types, sizes, and colors. Just click on the text and use the toolbar to change font type, size, and hue.
Whether you update your plans day to day or week to week, you need not start from scratch every time. Once you’re happy with your first design you can save and use it as a template for your next lesson. You can also access your designs virtually everywhere since Canva works and saves all your designs on a cloud. Simply log in to your Canva account from any web browser or even on your iPhone, iPad or Android devices to create or edit any design.
