How our story
began

Once upon a time,
There was a kindergartner who was frustrated by spelling, but loved art!
So it began...

Founder, Lara Olson, started Kidcreate Studio after being discouraged by the limited art exposure her son was receiving at school. In art class, he found tremendous joy in the creative process and none of the frustrations he was experiencing in some of his other classes.

Lara understood this. She too gravitated toward art as a child. Lara believed in the power of art to teach, inspire and build self-esteem. She also understood that art makes learning fun and a fun learning environment was exactly what her son needed. Lara started a quest for art classes for her son. She searched in vain for an art studio designed just for kids that combined quality art education with a fun kid-friendly environment. Finding nothing that met her requirements, she decided to create it!

Kidcreate Studio was born!

My kids took part in a parent’s night out class and thoroughly enjoyed themselves! They felt comfortable, made friends, and the project was easy enough but still beautiful.

Took my daughter and her friends here for her 5th birthday. What a wonderful, easy party! Plenty of room for parents to hang out and have some snacks while the teacher takes full reign of entertaining the kids with creativity. Miss Kayla was loved by all the kids and parents! Plenty of time before the party for set up...

Had my daughter’s 7th birthday party here and was so impressed! Dessy kept the kids engaged and entertained the entire time. The clay craft was so cute and age appropriate skill level. Highly recommend Kidcreate Parker!!

Amazing crafts, clay figures, cool paintings. He had so much fun! I highly recommend it! For a...

Little one is almost 2 y/o. Had such a great time with all the other kids painting! Trashed the studio. Instructor made me feel welcome. Very grateful for our experience.

My kids love the camps and parents' night out and we had our oldest's birthday party there recently. They were so thorough, and kids ages 2-12 were able to do the craft with success and they all had fun! The custom add ons made it all so stress free that I kept thinking I was forgetting something. Worth every penny.

Our children has a memorable and fun night at KidCreate EP. They created two dinosaur projects and had fun with other children that took the class. The instructors were very kind and engaging. We will definitely be back for a future date night class or another class. Thank you!

We had a great experience having a virtual party for our daughter’s birthday. The process was easy and my daughter and her friends had a blast painting and making slime. Looking forward to checking out some other events!

It is so much fun for kids who like to be creative and have messy time. They have art classes and camps for kids who love art and crafts and they get to have their birthday party doing an art project.

I went there. It was fun. I loved the art projects.

The Kidcreate art studio in Woodbury is fantastic! I've signed my little ones up for various classes, summer camps, and workshops over the past couple years. They both absolutely love going there and always look forward to their weekly class. The teachers/staff are excellent, and the art projects are made to be age-app...

I am a teacher at KidCreate, and I love it. It is a great place for kids of all ages who enjoy making art. The classes are always super energetic, and easy to follow along even for little kids. All the teachers are really good at providing extra help when needed, and they are really friendly.
— Clare G, Posted February 25th 2021 on google
Amazing place! The owner went out of her way today to assist me in signing my kids up for a summer camp, she navigated my problems with the website and my location's spotty wifi to ensure, through multiple emails, that my registration and invoice were correct. My kids have attended several camps and workshops at the ...
