ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Hi there, I'm Lucy!

I build websites + brand identities for entrepreneurs and small businesses at Hello Lucy Design.

After working for TV network Nickelodeon in NYC, producing a handful of elementary school + children's non-profit videos, and collaborating on over a dozen kids day-camps in Saint Louis, I realized I sure do enjoy working with the younger crowd!

So I'm combining my love of telling visual stories + creating something out of nothing with my enthusiasm for working with elementary school kids to bring you this 3-day Website Workshop for Kids 😊

 

Does your child have an idea for their very own website or want to learn how to create one?

Maybe they’ve got an idea for a how-to website for their favorite video game. A book review blog where they can write about their favorite sci-fi fantasy reads. A babysitting site to get hired!

Or perhaps they just want to learn how to tinker around online and build something from nothing. 

Over 3 days, I’ll show the class how to use Wix, a free web-building platform, to bring their vision to life.

In this workshop-style camp, your child will build their first website and specifically:

  • Get clear on what their site is for & who their visitors are

  • Choose a template OR blank slate as their launchpad for creativity

  • Choose a fun color scheme

  • Find fonts

  • Find imagery

  • Learn how to build on Wix (the free platform we’ll be using)

  • Lay out their Homepage

  • Lay out a Navigation menu

  • Make sure their site works on mobile phones

  • Have the chance to show off their site and what they’ve been working on for 3 days!

We will...

  • take plenty of “Brain Breaks” for snack, dance, yoga, and games… never a dull moment!

  • have daily discussion on the responsibilities of digital citizenship and how to use media for good manners and good health.
  • for those who finish their site early: learn to design their own business cards (to be printed at home or sent to an online printer) so they can pass to friends and family to direct traffic to their brand new site!

KIDS MUST BRING:

  • A laptop

    • If bringing a parent’s laptop that is password-protected, please provide child w/ password in case they get locked out

  • Laptop charger
  • An email address
    • used to sign up for a free Wix account (can be parent's email
  • Paper + pencil to sketch ideas

WHAT'S  NOT INCLUDED:

  • The purchase of a professional domain name

    • I will send you a video tutorial after the camp of how to purchase and connect a professional domain!

    • Instead your child WILL walk away with a site URL such as kidscamp.wixsite.com

  • Lunch (workshop ends just before lunchtime!)
