Arts Umbrella - http://www.artsumbrella.com/
Arts Umbrella is a not-for-profit organization that has been in Vancouver for over 30 years. With over 270 instructors, our organization offers a wide array of arts programs from : painting and dance to media arts and video game design, our range our courses is very broad.
Our society looks to advance the artisitc abilities of young people regardless of their financial situations.
Our society is fun and creative with a strong focus on advancing the lives of others. The website should be an extension of this personality.
Our target audience is anyone from 2 to 19 years old. These individuals can come from an array of artistic backgrounds including painting, photography, sculpting etc, so it is important that the site have a mass appeal.
However, the site also needs to be able to appeal to the parents of these kids who for the most part will be in charge of registering for the classes.
We need one homepage to the layout given below:
Please use the 960 grid system for the design (see http://www.960.gs)
Please keep the logo given in the wireframe but the rest is left open to you.
http://www.artcorner.ca/gallery.html - A clean site that displays images well in the gallery
http://www.woothemes.com/2009/03/groovy-video/ - A playful theme that could be fun with kids
http://www.woothemes.com/2009/02/irresistible/ - The site is very clean and would be easy to navigate which is good for both parents and kids.
http://www.artsumbrella.com/ - The existing site can serve as a good reference but no designs need to follow the specifics of the current Arts Umbrella site.
