The Benefits Of Art
Art teaches math, science, history and creativity. That's why children who participate in the arts are more likely to excel at school and in life! Children benefit from creating art as it helps build confidence, problem-solving skills, and social skills. Studies show that art education has a measurable positive impact on academics.
Self Esteem Art Validates a Child's Self-Esteem
Studies show that creating art can validate the uniqueness of a child, giving rise to a sense of accomplishment and to feelings of self-worth.
Social Skills Art Promotes Social Growth
Artistic activities promote growth in positive social skills, including self-confidence, self-control, conflict resolution, collaboration, empathy and social tolerance.
Academic Performance Art Improves Performance
Visual arts have been shown to improve writing, reading skills, interpretation of text, reasoning about scientific images and reading "readiness."
Problem Solving Art Encourages Critical Thinking
Reasoning ability, intuition, perception, imagination, inventiveness, creativity, problem-solving skills and expression are among the thought processes associated with "The study of the arts."
More Time For Mom & Dad!
Our customers' favorite time of the week is when they drop the kids off at Kidcreate Studio for an hour or more of guilt-free "ME-TIME!" They relax knowing their child is having FUN while doing something very positive for their development.
Meet The Owners
Lindsey Danhauser & Allison Durkee
Allison spent 12 years in a fulfilling corporate career, but she always dreamed of owning a business. After much research, she came across the Kidcreate franchise. She couldn't pass up the opportunity to get in touch with her creative side while making a difference in kids' lives. After opening the Lakeview Studio in 2019, Allison is excited to bring Kidcreate Studio to Oak Park!
Lindsey worked in community art for over a decade. After graduating from the College of Visual Arts with a BFA and St. Mary's University with a MA in arts and cultural management, she worked in a few different galleries and art centers before deciding her passion was in community art and bringing high quality art education to kids and families. After working with the Eden Prairie Kidcreate Studio for almost 10 years she and her partner Allison decided it was time to open their own studio in Chicago.
Allison and Lindsey 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!
