Artists, Musicians, Performers, & Culture Makers YOU NEED The Secret Knowledge of Poster Design

Learn to make eye-catching posters using your computer and free layout software (scribus).


Sunday February 23rd 2pm – 6pm (instruction starts at 3pm, see schedule below)

About this workshop

Layout software is the key to making professional-looking posters and promotional graphics to promote your work (art/music/babysitting/etc). We’ll be using a great free program called Scribus to make basic layouts that look great.

Secret Knowledge offers workshops aimed at empowering creative people. Attendees will come away with skills they can really use. Instruction will follow an inquiry-based, hands-on approach to learning. That means we’ll provide instruction on the basics of how to make posters and graphics layouts, attendees will participate in a work session designing some real posters that they expect to use (we hope) to promote something, and additional instruction will address the specific creative goals of attendees which arise during the work session. What to bring

Bring your Linux, Windows, or Macintosh laptop computer to the class. A limited number of loaner laptops can be made available, please ask in advance of the class if you will need one.

Instructions for installing Scribus will be provided to you ahead of the class and Secret Knowledge will host an installation party from 2pm – 3pm before the start of instruction for those who need assistance installing software.
