In addition to the long-term creative education curriculum, Arkki also offers short-term courses in more than 10 popular themes. Such theme courses are designed to teach creativity and 21st century skills through around a topic that students are interested in. For example, hut building, product design, fashion design, animation, and 3D computer modelling etc.
In a typical theme course, students work individually and in teams for 3 – 5 days, on a meaningful project that they care about. Students are guided to approach each project through design thinking and are taught how to apply STEAM knowledge while being provided opportunities to practice 21st-century skills and develop important qualities. At the end of each course, students would have persisted through challenges to succeed in bringing their ideas into reality, genuinely empowering their confidence and self-esteem.
