Hello  @kyndalmcham  Welcome to the Canvas Community.  Thank you for posting your question.  The ability to change the overall "theme" of your school's Canvas environment (such as adding a school logo and school colors to "brand" your Canvas environment) are really controlled by your school's local Canvas administrator.  Canvas administrators can use Guides like theses to help customize the school's Canvas environment:

This may also include adding some custom JS (JavaScript) or CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) code.

Or, are you asking about the course cards that display on your Canvas Dashboard?  Sometimes images will display on those course cards.  Only instructors are able to add pictures...students cannot.  But, you can customize the colors of those course cards (or just remove the color altogether).

I hope this information will be of help to you Kyndal.  Please let us know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!
