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!

Love this place for birthdays - they take care of almost everything, all you need to do is show up and bring any food. I had a 9 year old's party there and it was so easy - craft, cake, games and done! Highly recommend if you want something fun and easy on parents.

This is the place we've been looking 4. My 8 year old granddaughter loves interaction with the staff . It gives her socialization with the other children.

I rarely leave reviews but just thought it was worth saying that we love Kidcreate - Woodbury. We've attended a Thanksgiving and Grinchmas workshop and have loved the instructors and felt that the craft levels were very age-appropriate for our 3 year old. Could you do them at home? Absolutely. Is the $20 worth it? YES!...

My 5 year old daughter LOVED her morning at Kidcreate Art Studio in Alexandria. When I picked her up, she was over the moon about her creations and asking to come back every week. I'd say that's a winner. The art is nice too, which is a plus :) They worked with different media and forms - forming clay reliefs, painting...

We recently hosted my daughter's sixth birthday with her kindergarten class at Kidscreate.

The staff on-site that day were fantastic at keeping the k...
