About Kidcreate Studio

Kidcreate Studio is an art studio, just for kids!

We specialize in children’s art classes, camps, and art-themed birthday parties, for kids aged 18 months to 12 years. At a time when access to art education in schools is rapidly declining, Kidcreate Studio franchise owners are providing frustrated parents with a solution.

Kidcreate Studio is committed to picking up where public art education is becoming more limited. And as a result, our arts and crafts franchise owners enjoy running a business that brings a significant financial and emotional return on investment.

Our Story

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!

Kidcreate Studio was born!
