Hi, we're Scott and Rachelle: art and and design educators...teaching children, families, and adults in K-12 schools, colleges, and museums.

In our ever-changing world, where flexibility is more important than rigidity, we believe that setting the stage for creativity, curiosity, and imagination is one of the most important things we can do as parents, caregivers, and educators.

TinkerLab Schoolhouse is here to help you save time, feel organized, and make a shift from one-solution projects to curiosity-driven experiences.

We developed Schoolhouse to simplify the creative process for you, and share how you can harness simple tools to unleash the wonders of tinkering in your home.

If you're suddenly homeschooling, teaching from home, or would simply like to connect with your child through art and tinkering projects, we invite you to invest in your creative journey with us today.
