Vanessa Cancel, Kidcreate Studio - Mansfield

After 24 years of managing restaurants, Vanessa Cancel felt it was time to make her dream of having a work/life balance a reality. Finding a franchise that allows for that and also lets her go back to her childhood dream of working with her creative side is frosting on the cake! Kidcreate Studio allows her to check off all the boxes. Vanessa and her kids cannot wait to get messy with paint, clay and slime at the studio - and being able to provide a fun place for kids in their beloved town of Mansfield, Texas is just heaven!

Vanessa 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!

Attended a kid's birthday party here. I thought it was really well done. The art instructions were clear and broken down to be simple enough for seven year olds to be successful. The party wasn't rushed, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. Loved the experience!

Perfect place for a party. They had three staff on hand for ten kids. They were so good at keeping the kids quiet and focused while they made pottery crafts. I originally thought it was going to be a pottery painting studio, but it's far more than that. You can have them participate in just about any at craft from...

Great place for the kiddos. Teachers allowed the kiddos to be as creative as they want to be,. There is a wide variety of activities to try and have fun with. They have everything from clay sculpting to painting to mosaics. Just about every art and craft project you can think of. Kids had a great time.
