Shannon Schumacher, Kidcreate Studio - San Antonio

After the birth of her second child, Shannon Schumacher planned to take a year off from her 10-year career in Employee Benefits to stay home. However, after that year was up, she was not sure she wanted to return back to the corporate world. While making slime one day with her oldest daughter, she thought wouldn't it be great if there was a place where kids could go and make slime, paint masterpieces, and flex their creative muscles without fear of making a mess? This small seed took root and continued to grow in her heart. After much research, she and her husband, Stephen, discovered Kidcreate Studio and fell in love with the fun atmosphere, educational concept, and the flexibility it could provide for their family. With San Antonio's artist culture and abundance of young families, they know that this is the perfect place for a Kidcreate Studio and cannot wait to have kids come get messy! 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!
