On January 26th, 31st and February 2nd Assistant Professor Ian Whitmore will be demonstrating the fundamentals of setting up and creating a custom WordPress web site during his ART440 class from 3:00-6:00pm.

He is inviting any upper division Graphic Design majors who have taken/or are taking ART341 to drop in and follow along, take notes and see the general awesomeness that is WordPress.

Faculty are welcome to attend as well! 

This will be a demonstration only so note taking will be essential. He is going to look into recording the demos to create some tutorial videos later on.

WHEN? January 26th, 31st and February 2nd (possibly one more day)Shattuck Hall  Rm. 107 (Northwest corner of the basement)3:00-6:00PM
