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!

I took my 5 and 6 year old here and they had a great time! They instruct the kids on how they make their drawings, they have tons of patients with the kids and if they mess up it's okay! They go along with the idea :)

We love kidcreate in Savage. My son who is 9 has attended multiple classes at the studio, took a community education class at our elementary and just last weekend had his birthday at the studio. All of the instructors we have had have been fantastic. They make art fun! We look forward to taking more art classes at kids...

I booked a birthday party for my four-year-old, and she and her friends loved it! Staff was awesome, studio was very nice and clean, the kids were engaged, and everyone had a good time. I got tons of compliments from the parents as well, they all seemed to enjoy the experience. Everything was very well organized!
