Jerry Lamonica, Kidcreate Studio - Rock Hill

After 20 years in retail management, Jerry was looking for a way to blend his love of working with the public, and his need to be with his family. With Kidcreate Studio, Jerry was able to find that work-life balance that was missing for so long. "I love being involved in the community and engaging with the public, while still being there for my kids and family whenever they need me!" The family-friendly environment and the crazy creative curriculum (say that a few times fast) here at Kidcreate can make anyone feel like a kid again!

Jerry welcomes you and your children to put on an apron and create with Kidcreate. After all, making a mess is the best with 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!

We celebrated my daughter’s 5th birthday here and it was an awesome party! The studio knew how to communicate with children, helped them with their masterpieces, and really kept things flowing. It was a stress free party! We will definitely be back to check them out again! Highly recommend if your child likes art!

My daughter had her 8th birthday party here last weekend and it was great! All the kids had a great time and the parents thought it was a great party idea. Jerry hosted the party and he was also great with the kids. It was a huge success.

We had our son's 5th birthday here and the team really did a great job. We didn't have to worry about a thing. The kids had a blast, the parents loved it, and we felt like it was a bargain for the service we received.

It's a fun, messy little studio! Or host was super friendly and engaging. The Kids had fun at the birthday party there and got to bring home a handful of at supplies and a painting they did there. A spot for the adults to sit and hang out would be a perfect touch.

My daughter loves it, she want's to 'go back to school' everyday! We drop her off and come back to get her 3 hours later and she is still so excited when we pick her up! They are great with kids and they learn how to make lots of different things. Will keep bringing my daughter back for sure!

Daughter's 7th birthday party was "the best day of her life." 🙂 From getting the party scheduled, details arranged, and the party itself - so organized and so easy. Fabulous experience for us, for our daughter, and for her friends. Highly recommend!

Had my son’s 5th Birthday party here and it was AMAZING. I have never thrown a less stressful birthday party. Dropped decorations off the day before, and they had everything ready to go for us. Brought pizza and cake, and then sat outside on the patio while they directed the entire party. Served the pizza, directed t...
