Lara Olson, Kidcreate Studio - Eden Prairie

Lara Olson started Kidcreate Studio after experiencing frustration over the limited art exposure her children were receiving in school. 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! And KIDCREATE was born!

Lara 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!

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.

Just completed the 5 week series with my 2 year old Granddaughter. The 45 minute classes were the perfect length, taught by enthusiastic staff and the perfect, safe introduction to group art. "Arty and Crafty" were a memorable bonus!

It is so much fun for kids who like to be creative and have messy time. They have art classes and camps for kids who love art and crafts and they get to have their birthday party doing an art project.
