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!

This is a great place for kids who love art and getting messy! They always have fun projects that kids love to do and even have date nights for mom and dad to get away from the kiddos. They have been doing extra cleaning since covid and even are providing at home art kits for purchase!

My daughter recently her birthday party here. They set everything up and cleaned everything up afterwards. Kids had a great time, project was fun, and the facility was clean.

We had our 6 year old's most recent birthday party here. It was such a great experience. Booking was easy and painless. The party itself was probably one of the best times I've had at a kid's birthday. My son loved that he got to make and wear a birthday crown (he still wears it, 6 months later), and the take-home happ...

Participated in a virtual class during shelter in place and was very impressed with how they translated the lessons onto a digital format/platform. There customer service was also outstanding.

We have had the pleasure of attending both in person sessions and ordering the at-home kits. We loved both! My 7 year old daughter is so excited when I sign her up for class, and when we receive a kit for her to work on at home. I highly recommend Kidcreate Studio. Such a great place!

My daughter has been to this studio for a camp and a birthday party and she has had so much fun both times! We already scheduled her for another camp later this month. She is 7 years old and the themes for their workshops are so age appropriate and exciting for her. I would highly recommend this art studio!

Amazing place! The teachers are very dedicated and make sure that everybody is having a good time. My 5-year old is not into art and he was surprisingly very engaged!
— Alina Fernandez, Posted June 8th 2020 on google
Our daughter has really enjoyed the many art camps she’s attended here! Such a fun and interactive place with engaging instructors and staff.

My daughter and I took an 8-week art class at Kidcreate Studio in Broomfield. She loved it! The instructors were organized for each class and flexible with each child and their artistic abilities. We will definitely be back for other classes in the future!

We bought art kits to take home on several occasions. The quality of the materials was great and the video tutorials were simple and easy for us to follow.

We love Jen and Kidcreate! My son took classes both as an after school club as well outside of school on the weekends and has always enjoyed the activity and art projects he's made. Jen makes art so much fun for the kids and I'm so happy that she has supported our budding artist with her awesome classes! Look no fur...
