This summer has been full of healing art!  While we’ve been busy facilitating and training, we’ve also been busy behind the scenes refreshing our website.

We’ve updated the look and feel of the site with more readable fonts, responsive animations, and more while keeping the core “design” in place. With this update, we also optimized the website to load quicker on mobile and at home.

During the refresh, we also analyzed 2 years of website traffic, user comments, and suggestions in order to see how we could improve. As a result, we’ve made a few changes and improvements to the website that we hope you’ll enjoy!

 

8 Website Changes for 2018

Navigation change – Paint vs. Participate

We have renamed the “Participate” category to “Paint” at the top of the website. We feel that the verb “Paint” better reflects what we do. Most of the content you found under “Participate” can now be found under “Paint”.

Healing Art Box Page

Our annual Healing Art Box drive is an important part of our mission. Previously, we had content about the drive on our Donate page. Since we spend a good deal of the year on the drive, we’ve decided to build a new Healing Art Boxes page to emphasize it more. We hope you’ll enjoy the expanded content on the program there!

Check out Healing Art Boxes under the “Donate” menu!

Programs Page

We’ve handed out paper “rack cards” describing our programs for years. Although our site mentioned our programs, we wanted to provide a space dedicated to more detail on our six Core Programs. We hope this new Programs page, with expanded content, gives you a clearer picture of our impact on the community!
