About

Do you find yourself discussing fonts with strangers on the bus? Find yourself killing time not on Facebook but on Pantone.com? We want to tap into that obsession! We're looking for someone who can help guide the re-design of our website with a basic style-guide.


WHAT WE NEED:

We are entering our second year, and have some amazing volunteer web developers working with us. Last year they developed & put up a basic website that hosts our curriculum. But, we know it isn't all it could be. We are looking for someone who can help us streamline and improve the design and usability of our website. We need design direction.

WHAT WE HAVE IN PLACE

We have a complete website that just needs tweaks. We aren't looking for a complete design overhaul, rather, someone to come in and help make our design consistent and appealing.

THE DELIVERABLE:

While this is somewhat open to the designers discretion and motivation, we are hoping to have a basic style guide that can help our developers streamline the site and add new features.

HOW THIS WILL HELP

We are an organization that empowers classroom teachers in schools without an art program to expose their students to high-quality art education.

Our success depends on our website being intuitive and easy to use.

ABOUT US:

Doodles Academy aims to expand children's access to high-quality arts education, envisioning a world where every child receives an arts education that inspires and rewards creativity, growth and problem solving.

Doodles achieves this goal by providing an online curriculum that includes video examples, lesson plans, supply lists, and links to Common Core and Visual Art standards. Doodles Academy makes it easy for educators of all types and experience levels to bring a comprehensive and open-ended art curriculum to their students.


Doodles Academy projects allow room for every child to tell her own story. By providing lessons that scaffold skills and ideas, students are challenged to think complexly without becoming overwhelmed. Discussion and exploration is built into each project, encouraging students to find their own creative solutions. http://www.doodles-academy.org/


FUN FACT ABOUT ART EDUCATION

Kids with access to art education do better on standardized tests, stay in school longer, and get more advanced degrees (really!).
