IT STARTED WITH A MOM FIGHTING FOR HER SON
…and is now one of the most successful, exciting franchise models available.
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 joy in the creative process and none of the frustrations he was experiencing in other classes.
Lara believed in the power of art to teach, inspire and build self-esteem. She knew art makes learning fun, which is what her son needed. Lara started her quest. She searched in vain for an art studio designed for kids that combined quality art education with a fun environment. Finding nothing that met her requirements, she decided to create it…
Kidcreate Studio was born!
And now it is on track to become one of the most successful children’s art businesses in the country!

We love our weekly art classes! My daughter is 4 and is able to complete each project on her own, and I love that I’m able to sit right next to her while she’s having fun! The atmosphere is warm, welcoming, and relaxed.

JERMILLIA BALLENGER – FB Review | Kidcreate Studio Greenville, SC
I attended several classes here with my sons. The classes transformed my four-year-old on a creative level. He was so amazed at what he could create. Everyone who works at Kidcreate is extremely nice and helpful! I would highly recommend this experience.
