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!

First of all, I teach here, which may make my feedback biased. However, in spite of it, I am willing to give the place a five-star rating and that should speak by itself about what place it is. I honestly believe that the studio serves the community. It offers kids and their parents and grandparents a unique experience...

Our 6 year old son took the clay class earlier this month and we were very happy. He learned a lot but also had a great time. The staff was very friendly and kind. We were so happy that we have already signed him up for the Harry Potter camp next week and we will continue to attend camps there. VERY PLEASED!!

We had my son's 4th birthday party here, and it everything went so well, I could not have asked for anything more. We arrived about 15 minutes before it started to drop off the cupcakes, snacks and balloons, and let my son create his own birthday crown. Everything else was taken care of! The party favors they gave the ...
