Creative Learning


Unstructured Studio is a non-profit organization that develops tools, activities, and resources to engage children from underserved communities in creative learning experiences.

Our Vision

To build a movement in which every child, anywhere in the world, has access to creative education.

We believe that creativity is an essential 21st-century skill for children. It helps with holistic development, solving pressing problems of the future, preparing for the future workforce, and leading a meaningful and fulfilling life. Renowned educators have advocated for nurturing creativity in a classroom setting alongside numeracy and literacy; a study has also ranked creativity as among the top 15 skills employers want.

In today's landscape, creative education often aligns with STEM kits, subscription-based programs, community learning centers, hackerspaces, and similar initiatives. However, while these approaches thrive in developed-world or urban settings, they often falter in resource-constrained environments. These areas frequently suffer from shortages of essential tools, resources, internet connectivity, and adequately trained teachers, leading to a diminished emphasis on creativity in traditional classroom settings. Noteworthy educators like Arvind Gupta have historically spearheaded initiatives such as Toys from Trash, which have provided millions of children in India and the developing world with avenues for creative expression.

We aim to take this forward and create open, low-cost, and accessible creative learning experiences. Through these, children can develop the vital 4Cs of 21st-century skills: creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication, becoming adept problem solvers of the future. In an era dominated by artificial intelligence and automation, effective communication, collaboration, and critical thinking are increasingly indispensable. By integrating these skills into creative education initiatives, we strive to equip children with the necessary tools to thrive in an ever-evolving world.

Our Mission

Our work is inspired by Mitchel Resnick's four guiding principles (4P's) of Creative Learning: Projects, Peers, Passion, and Play and based on research at MIT Media Lab's Lifelong Kindergarten. We develop tools, activities, and resources that center around these 4Ps and foster a creative mindset, one in which the children's approach to learning and problem-solving changes and they adopt the following qualities.
