About This Class
The student will be required to build and publish a number of functional and aesthetic web sites using HTML & CSS. In the process, you will learn about fundamental web design concepts. This course assumes proficiency with computer operation and basic knowledge of image manipulation using Photoshop. Students will learn how to conceive, plan and execute web sites and web graphics that communicate messages effectively, and that are visually compellingusing Dreamweaver and Photoshop.
This is not a “programming” course, nor a “software mastery” course, but rather a course that focuses on the “design” aspect of web design.
This is a “studio” course, and as such it requires the student’s active participation and attendance. The student is expected to be self-motivated and willing to engage the assignments with creative problem solving skills. There are no written assignments or tests in this course; instead, projects and critiques are used.
Since all information given in the lectures is sequential, missing a class can weaken a student’s ability to follow subsequent concepts.
