Meet The Owners
Brian and Jennifer Collins

Brian and Jennifer Collins , Kidcreate Studio - Houston (Greater Heights)

Brian and Jennifer Collins are a dynamic duo! Both are wearing the many hats a working couple and parents of small boys wear. Like many other parents, they feel the key to any successful home and fruitful future is to plan.

That is precisely what Jennifer and Brian did when it was time for their two boys, Preston and Mason, to begin Elementary School. After Brian received his Executive MBA from Rice University, his entrepreneurial desires ignited. They began to explore further the idea of owning a small business in their community. They decided to combine Jennifer's superpowers gained from 13 years in corporate America, four years as a Preschool Director, and years of motherhood to open Houston's first Kidcreate Studio! The two are an excellent fit for this adventure; each of their strengths blends well together. Jennifer is the creative master, handling all the Studio's operations. Brian uses his Airforce, International Corporate experience, and MBA to fine-tune Jennifer's ever-growing imagination.

Translating their passion, personalities, and energy into their Kidcreate Studio will come naturally for the Collins', allowing kids to learn through fun experiences and art with enthusiastic teachers.

Collins' welcome 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!

I was really curious about signing my kids up for Kidcreate Studio. Thinking at first it was very similar to other kids aftercare programs, but when my kids arrived and I experienced the professionalism, creativity, and such positive energy of this program, It’s nothing like any other program I’ve ever seen.
