Learn How To Style Web Pages With CSS – Class Starts 4/11/15


What’s CSS, you ask?

It’s Cascading Style Sheets and it is what designers use to style web pages. With CSS we add art direction – typography, layout, color and background images to our pages.

My next CSS class on FIT campus starts Saturday, April 11 and ends the following Saturday. We go from 10 AM – 5Pm and if you’re nice to me I will even let you take me to lunch.

Here are the topics we do with hands on exercises and demonstrations:

1. Smart ways to set font size.

2. Working with color and background properties.

3. Tried and true layout techniques.

4. Rollover navigation without javascript.

Plus we will get a good look at what Responsive Design is all about.

Yes, CSS3 is built into what I teach.

Since most web sites today are built upon a pre-existing framework I will introduce you to that idea as well. And if you have ever seen me create a customized WordPress theme and want to do it yourself this class is a must!!

This class is good for anyone but web design and developer wannabes wool love it the most. You will need to know some HTML before you take this class.

Now Go And Register Before It’s Too Late!!


Bud Kraus teaches CTD 600 Web Design: HTML , CTD 605 Web Design: Cascading Style Sheets, and CTD 613: WordPress.
