Web design, the right way

For all ages, adults and kids

Only web sites that look great, are easy to use, and are easy to change are ever successful. Think this is hard to learn to do? You are wrong. This lively, instant-results class will make you realize that new technologies, such as content management systems, have taken the drudge out of web design. A class for beginners and advanced beginners who want to learn how to do web design the right way, with current technology that is almost invisible and lets you focus on content. Discover the magic of Drupal. Find out about HTML and CSS in an easy, fun way. Learn about illustration, photo editing, writing, animation, and much more. Projects are customized based on need and ability. Learn how to make a web site as a media production, not a technology project, from someone who has been doing media production for 33 years. You may be able to build the site you need during the class.
