Website Design Course

Ok, this is a question that I have no idea where to turn, so I call upon all of you in the web sphere to assist me. I am looking on where to be directed. I want to learn the ins and outs of web design. Basically, be able to create websites from scratch of all shapes and sizes. Nice looking ones, not the old lycos neon colored websites that you can easily make, ive made those but they never look good. I have designs and website ideas in my head but have no clue on how to make those into a website. I have tried elance. Com but the people I have found have no idea how to translate my idea into a website that looks decent. So, what I am looking for is something that is a hands on experience, actually going to a place to learn website design, does this exist? What is the normal process to learn to make and design websites? I have a lot of knowledge about computers, but software and design is something very foreign to me and I want to learn it. How do I do it. Do you know what I found? You can find step by step guide on how to create a website at website like .
