Creative education for future innovators
Arkki was founded in Finland in 1993 and is the world's leading school of architecture and creative education for children and youth from 4 to 19 years old. We have opened our doors to Singapore with the aim of building a systematic and progressive creative education ecosystem for children and youth, connecting them to their peers throughout ASEAN, Asia and with Finland through international camps, projects and exchange programmes.
In Finland, the Arkki curriculum has since integrated into the national extra-curricular creative program and is endorsed by the Finnish Ministry of Education & Culture. Arkki is also certified by the Finnish National Agency for Education to export the Finnish education know-hows to the rest of the world. For over 25 years, Arkki has organized thousands of courses and workshops for more than 20,000 children in more than 20 countries.
