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!

Vanessa and her staff are so nice. The kids at my daughter's party left feeling like they were artists. The facility is clean and well kept. Super affordable for the carafts that we did and we got to take them home same day. I would definitely recommend KidCreate Studios to anyone.

This place is so much fun. We had my son 6th birthday party . They made Lego heads. We had about 16 kids. They were very accommodating and enthusiastic. They made a crown with him and made him feel special but also included all his friends. Many parents told me how they were excited with this place and that their child...

I had my first Kidcreate Art Studio experience yesterday at a neighbor’s birthday party. The party was organized, clean and the kids LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT! They got to make such cool art and my kids came home saying it was the BEST birthday party ever! I highly recommend Kidcreate!

Just completed the 5 week series with my 2 year old Granddaughter. The 45 minute classes were the perfect length, taught by enthusiastic staff and the perfect, safe introduction to group art. "Arty and Crafty" were a memorable bonus!

Diane was gracious to offer a complimentary virtual art class on a snowy day for Key Escuela. My kids really enjoyed the class with Miss Sydney, they couldn't wait to show me their masterpiece. This was a great option to keep the kids preoccupied while I was working from home. Thanks again Diane and we look to attendin...

Fun Craft for the kids, they were able to make a banner if someone finished early, they have someone write down the gifts your child receives so you can write Thank you cards, we were able to bring in cupcakes and juice they provided plates. It was great

We had our daughters 6th birthday party at Kid Create and we had a blast! They took care of everything - and it was SO fun to let the kiddos get messy, create a fun craft, and celebrate! The studio is super cute (our first time there) and the instructors/owner was so attentive and fun with the kiddos. They all had so m...

We had my son's 4th birthday party here, and it everything went so well, I could not have asked for anything more. We arrived about 15 minutes before it started to drop off the cupcakes, snacks and balloons, and let my son create his own birthday crown. Everything else was taken care of! The party favors they gave the ...

We hosted our daughter’s 7th bday party with KidCreate and they were organized throughout the process, fun and engaging with the kids at the party, and flexible with us when a family crisis caused us to change plans. Our daughter was thrilled with the party! High recommend!

For my daughter’s 6th birthday party we wanted to do something small and outside of our home with little to no work on our part. Thankfully we chose the perfect spot…Kidcreate was not only a great spot but the art teachers were phenomenal! They ensured the kids had fun, engagement level was high and they were able ...

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...
