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!

Loved our experience at KidCreate! My kids all had fun making super cute projects and it was a great to get to create some art without making a huge mess in our own house! Loved the fun learning environment. Very clean and organized too, which was a huge plus as a parent.

We had the best time. The owner was so friendly from the minute we walked in. She was kind but also firm about her rules. She was helpful and fun! And then we didn’t have to clean up any of the mess! A perfect way to craft.
