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!

Our children has a memorable and fun night at KidCreate EP. They created two dinosaur projects and had fun with other children that took the class. The instructors were very kind and engaging. We will definitely be back for a future date night class or another class. Thank you!

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.

This is a great place for kids who love art and getting messy! They always have fun projects that kids love to do and even have date nights for mom and dad to get away from the kiddos. They have been doing extra cleaning since covid and even are providing at home art kits for purchase!

I attended several classes here with my 4 and 5 year old sons. The classes transformed my four year old on a creative level. He was so amazed at what he could create. It's been really fun to see him doing projects at home with duct tape, boxes, stickers, markers, dabbers, pipe cleaners...you name it! Everyone who works...
