Website design update
We need a new website! We are currently running our site on a Wix platform and managing and maintaining it ourselves -- but no one on staff is an IT or web design professional. The site itself is complicated, as it needs to communicate to and work for a wide range of stakeholders: parents and students registering for art classes, community members curious about what our organization does, and potential funders who want to see we are mission-driven and results-oriented. We need someone to overhaul the current site to make it look good while remaining functional for registrations and donations as they come in. Eventually we'd like to integrate information that comes through the website to a CRM, and while that's going to be a later project we'd like the current volunteer to design our site in a way that allows that to happen in the future. We need a new website! Our community art studio has been around since 2013. We recently became a nonprofit, in hopes of bringing great art education to more members of our community, and need a site that gets our name and mission out to the public in an attention-grabbing, eye-catching, and easy-to-navigate way. We want more people to get to know what we offer and what our goals for the future are so we can raise more money for kids and families in need. We also want funders and potential supporters to see our site and feel confident in our professionalism and ability to realize our mission. We are artists, but not web designers. We need someone with an experienced eye and specialized skill set to design a website that will reflect the high quality art education we bring to our community. We have been making incremental adjustments and improvements to our website since becoming non-profit in June of 2018, but need someone to take the small fixes we've put into place into a whole new arena. Our website is built on a Wix platform and can be edited remotely with just a laptop and internet connection. Three staff members (our Executive Director Kristin, Education Manager Stefanie, and Studio Manager Catherine) currently manage and maintain it, and all three will be available to consult and work with the skilled volunteer to get our website to the next level. Once the project is completed, we are excited to launch our new website and get the word out to current and future supporters that we are working hard to make affordable and accessible art education a reality!
