Hi! I’m Rachelle Doorley (pronounced Raquel!), the founder of TinkerLab. I create easy and fun art activities that children and adults love – all in the spirit of exploration, experimentation, and play.

In addition to creating content for this website, I’m a maker, mom, Resident Fellow at Stanford, and author of three kids creativity books, TinkerLab: A Hands-on Guide for Little InventorsTinkerLab Art Starts: 52 Projects for Open-ended Exploration, and Creative Adventures in Cursive.

I’m also the founder of TinkerLab Schoolhouse, the online kids creativity and art club, offering weekly art plans for families and teachers.
