From personal experience as amateur artists, we have found the need for a platform that focuses on what we, as artists, need to gain exposure within the art community and reach a proper audience for the same.

What it does

Provides a platform for artists to showcase their talent to a larger, more concentrated audience.

How we built it

We designed the prototype using Figma, which was later coded into an app using Java on Android Studio.

Challenges we ran into

  • Choosing the right color palette to make sure the art posted stood out.
  • Inculcating the proper UX by going through all possible navigation pathways.
  • To make it memory efficient.
  • Having no prior experience with app development, the overall implementation process was challenging.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • The entire prototype design, we personally think it is beautiful :)
  • Figuring out Android Studio
  • Getting an app up and running,

What we learned

  • That designing is actually a significant part of app development, even though initially we didn't think it would be so hard.
  • UI and UX that goes behind app development.
  • The overall app development process.
  • Hackathons let us know what to expect in a real world project implementation. They also give us a head start on developing our ideas
  • How to come up with a problem statement and the solution for the same.

What's next for ARTsY

We are going to try to further develop the app with Google APIs and Firebase
