Depends on the company. Some will require degrees, some won’t. ALL will expect a good portfolio and demonstrated ability.
SO, you might be able to skip the classes, but not the learning. : )
Also depends on the classes: you say “web development classes” – I’ve had some experiences helping people with college web assignments, and the courses/assignments have always been uniformly mundane and horribly behind-the-curve in terms of best practices. (And that’s the better assignments.)
If you want “design,” take classes in art, graphic design, and so forth.
If you want “development,” take classes in computer science.
