This course is for casual learners interested in exploring the creative potential of everyday office applications. People should take this course if they want to dip their toes into the world of pixel art, excel art, or in this case, Google Sheet Parties.

Join us to see and celebrate how people express themselves on the internet through image, emojis, text, color, and more. Let’s walk through a blank, digital landscape composed of malleable cells ready to be filled with text, color, and more! Digital footprints are welcome.

Be courteous and understanding of our surroundings. Things like column size, color, and other elements may suddenly shift since multiple people will be playing in the document, so be mindful of how you alter the digital space and how it might affect others. If you would like draw solo, please feel free to open up your own document. Ultimate personalization! :~)

Sharing time & Farewell

We’ll take a slow scroll around the shared document and open up the stage for voluntary screen sharing. Let’s keep the verbal and written comments to each other as kind and concise as possible. After everyone who would like to shared has done so, we’ll wrap things up and bid farewell.
