Posted October 20, 2018 09:16:08 The New Mexico Institute of Technology’s new web design lab will offer college-level design classes to local high school students.
The Web Design Academy will be based at the university’s Culinary Institute of the Arts.
Students will receive a $40-an-hour stipend to attend classes and will receive tuition waivers, which are not required to attend.
The institute’s director, Mary Ann Stokes, said the program is designed to provide an opportunity for students to learn and build on their own creative skills.
“We’re creating a place where young people can have the opportunity to really create something, to have that skill set to build their own company and to build something new,” she said.
The Web Art Academy has been in the works since March. “
Students will be able go to Culinary school, which is great because it has the resources that Culinary can offer.”

“This is an exciting new project, and it is a great way for us to bring these skills to young people,” she added.
“And this is going to be a way for young people to learn the skills they need to succeed.”
The academy will be open to students ages 18-23.
“They can get started right away and then go on to learn more about the skills and techniques that are needed to be successful,” Stokes told the Times.
“I’m excited to see them in their dorm rooms.”
