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!

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.

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.

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 ...

This is a great place for kids who love art and getting messy! They always have fun projects that kids love to do and even have date nights for mom and dad to get away from the kiddos. They have been doing extra cleaning since covid and even are providing at home art kits for purchase!

My daughter had a great party with 4 boys and 5 girls enjoying the art project, slime making and cupcakes. It was a fun day!

My daughter recently her birthday party here. They set everything up and cleaned everything up afterwards. Kids had a great time, project was fun, and the facility was clean.
— Britt S., Posted July 12th 2020 on google
We had our 6 year old's most recent birthday party here. It was such a great experience. Booking was easy and painless. The party itself was probably one of the best times I've had at a kid's birthday. My son loved that he got to make and wear a birthday crown (he still wears it, 6 months later), and the take-home happ...

Participated in a virtual class during shelter in place and was very impressed with how they translated the lessons onto a digital format/platform. There customer service was also outstanding.
— Lesley Schmidt Sindberg, Posted June 10th 2020 on google
We have had the pleasure of attending both in person sessions and ordering the at-home kits. We loved both! My 7 year old daughter is so excited when I sign her up for class, and when we receive a kit for her to work on at home. I highly recommend Kidcreate Studio. Such a great place!
— Jennifer Hughes - OIT, Posted June 8th 2020 on google
