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!

My kids so far have painted, sculpted, colored, glued, cut and made some fun foam! The owner and all the other art teachers there are so friendly, ...

Have gone to the Kid Create Dana Point studio a few times and have loved it. My 2 yo son loves making art and the stories that go along with it. Well paced and easy enough for him to follow along. Hoping they open a studio in San Diego too!
