Meera Patel, Kidcreate Studio - Ashburn

After recently being a stay-at-home mom for almost five years and having a passion for arts and crafts, Meera sought out a business that would promote and support creativity in kids. She wanted to feel happy and motivated to go to work every morning, and once she started researching, she discovered Kidcreate Studio and loved how art was incorporated with education! With his significant expertise in finance, Meera's husband, Nishil, will work as her business partner to handle the financial side of the business. Together, with their three young children, they hope to spread the joys of Kidcreate with their community and open their studio doors to anyone who wants to have FUN and feel like a kid again!

Meera welcomes you and your children to visit the studio, put on an apron and create. After all, making a mess is the best at Kidcreate!

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!

The art my 7 son made was so cool! He really enjoyed it. My favorite art he brought home was the snow globe and clay donuts!

Our kids are not “camp” kids, but they love art so we signed them up for a full day camp at Kidcreate. They said it was the “best day ever” and they adored the teacher who was “funny” and “nice.” We were super impressed by both the amount of projects and different mediums that were explored in just 1 c...

My kids went to a day camp here, and loved every minute! The projects were creative and used a lot of different skills and media. The kids tried some new things, made beautiful art, and had a ton of fun. Great experience, we will definitely be coming back!

My two year old and I had an awesome time at a trial class this past week. Meera, the owner, is awesome and the teachers are so patient and kind. My son was so proud of his artwork! We definitely plan to take more classes in the future!

We signed up for a free class at Kidcreate and what a great experience! My daughter had so much fun and with art classes currently only being taught virtually it was so nice for her to have some hands on instruction. We were so happy with our experience we purchased the family membership and two weeks of summer camps...

Really wonderful experience for my kids. They were thrilled with the pieces they created, and I was thrilled to drop them off in a safe and nurturing environment. The entire studio is surrounded by windows, so it was nice to be able to peek in on them. We will definitely be returning!

My kids had a great time participating in this craft. They have legit crafts that are actually worth the money. My kids made a rainbow out of clay. Not some lame paper craft that you will throw away in a couple weeks. We still have their rainbows :)

My boys loved doing the clay craft for St. Patrick's day at Lost Rhino! The teachers were very friendly and helpful and the craft turned out great!

Kidcreate saved me during Covid! It was an activity where both of my girls (6 and 8) were engaged and having fun. They did beautiful art pieces that looked complicated in the beginning but really easy to do. The teachers were so fun and patient. Highly recommended!

We have been using them for over a year to order art kits and do online art classes. My kids love it!! Highly recommend them.
