Web and Graphic Design Workshop

Flier #1



VeryGroovy Design Studios will teach an intensive 5-day (16 hour) comprehensive Web Design Course for entrepreneurs and business persons who would like to learn how to develop their web concepts on their own. It has come to our attention that many entrepreneurs have relatively simple internet-related concepts, but have difficulty building these concepts. The purpose of the course is to teach these individuals the necessary skills that they need to learn in order to build their web concept on their own.

The course is designed to help individuals with a current web project idea that they would like to get off of the ground AND individuals who are looking to learn how to build and manage their own websites. The first part of the course is the web design and graphics portion. This section teaches students how to use relevant techniques (using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator) to build a cohesive and eye-catching web design. The next portion of the course is the web development portion. This section leverages the design that you created in the first portion by turning it into a functional website (using HTML, CSS stylesheets, and Javascript). There are no pre-requisites to taking this course and it is open to the public. This course does not expect you to have any prior knowledge of these programs and moves at a pace that is understandable for all different levels.
