Our Mission

Our mission is to provide access to high-quality learning.

We believe that everyone is creative, and that giving people tools to harness their creative power has the potential to change lives for the better. Not creativity defined as an artist but creativity defined as a mindset, as a mental toolkit, as a set of building blocks, as a way of solving problems, and as a means to live a more interesting life.

By teaching the skills needed in tomorrow’s world, Skillshare empowers creators to pursue the work they love today.

“My first thought was, who am I to teach?”

– Mary Kate McDevitt, Skillshare teacher with 50,000 students
