What Is
Kidcreate Studio?

Specializing in children’s art classes, camps and art-themed birthday parties, Kidcreate Studio is an art studio just for kids. At Kidcreate Studio, your child will create fridge-worthy masterpieces, learn art concepts, and experiment with many different art materials.

We are not just an arts and crafts franchise, our Franchise Owners enjoy running a business that brings significant financial and emotional return on investment while providing kids with a essential part of their development and childhood education.


Weekly classes, camps, workshops, and homeschool.


Birthday parties as well as private group parties.

Mobile Classes

On-The-Go classes & parties outside of the studio.

The Story Behind
Our Success

It all started with a boy named Jake who loved art. When Kidcreate Studio Founder Lara Olson found out her son Jake was only getting one hour of art a week, she began a journey to bring greater accessibility of art to children all across the country.

Why Own A
Kidcreate Studio


Kidcreate improves the lives of children while making a difference in their communities. Feeling fulfilled is easy when you’re positively impacting the world… and your bank account!

Flexible Business Model

Kidcreate offers two unique business models that have the ability to bring our highly sought-after curriculum to child-friendly businesses and consumers in the community with our mobile studio business, as well as the option to offer classes and camps in a beautiful brick & mortar studio location. If you prefer, you can start with the mobile studio business and add a physical brick & mortar studio option later!

Community Focus

Partner with organizations united in the fight against the decline of art education, and you can become a well-respected voice of change as the face of your local Kidcreate Studio.


Kidcreate Studio is a one-of-a-kind experiential business that cannot be replicated by the online giants. Kidcreate Studio has thrived during the 2008/09 economic crisis and now COVID-19. You’ll sleep soundly knowing your new business is proven to be recession-resistant.

Strong Profitability

With the mobile studio model, you can start generating revenues from your business almost immediately. Ongoing overhead costs are kept extremely low for impressive profit margins. The ability to add a brick & mortar studio creates additional revenue streams and cross-marketing potential.


With the ability to open locations in as little as 60 days, you can grow your Kidcreate Studio empire to encompass the entire region with multiple units or stick to a single location in your neighborhood- as a Franchise Owner, it’s up to you!

Ownership Models

As a Kidcreate Studio Franchise Owner, you can choose which of our two business models suits you best. You can choose from the brick & mortar studio model, or our mobile business model. This allows you the opportunity to set high financial goals for your new business while selecting a business model that fits your lifestyle.

Brick & Mortar Studio

We are a children’s arts and crafts franchise with physical, brick and mortar studios where we offer classes, birthday parties and sell art-themed retail items. In addition, our Brick and Mortar Studios operate a Mobile Studio where they conduct art classes and parties at additional  locations throughout their community. This creates fantastic cross marketing opportunities between the two sides of the business!

Mobile Studio

Our Mobile Studio locations do not have a brick and mortar studio. Instead the Mobile Studio locations primarily focus on bringing our highly sought-after curriculum out into the community by creating partnerships with private schools, community centers, preschools and other organizations in their area.

*Franchisees are not required to purchase Kidcreate branded vehicles.

Invest In Your Future

As a new Kidcreate Franchise Owner, you’ll own a mobile studio business or a beautiful brick & mortar studio. Dual revenue streams bring bigger returns on investment!
