Lindsey Danhauser Partners with Art Studio Franchise Kidcreate Studio!

art franchise

From community center art director to newfound franchisee of art studio franchise Kidcreate Studio, Lindsey Danhauser believes art is truly for everyone, and her passion has consistently been found in spreading art education and administration within her local communities. 

Danhauser began her art journey through classical training in college, where she worked in galleries and earned a degree in fine arts, before realizing her true calling of engaging directly with her community. Danhauser thus found herself in the role of the Arts Center Supervisor at a local art center in Eden Prairie, Minnesota– which is also the origin of the art studio franchise, Kidcreate Studio. With Kidcreate Studio’s inception in 2007, Danhauser and Kidcreate Studio founder Lara Olson began an 11-year partnership between the business and the art center to host local art events and classes. 

In June 2018, Danhauser moved to Chicago, Illinois, and discovered Kidcreate Studio’s wish to also expand into this area. Given her past experience working directly with Olson as well as her love for sharing art with her community, Danhauser knew this was the perfect chance to get involved in art studio franchise opportunities and invest in the brand, leading to a three-unit deal with her business partner, Allison Durkee. 

Danhauser claims, “With Kidcreate Studio, I saw how my values aligned with the brand and vice versa. Being a franchisee, and one for an arts education brand, I know I can focus on growing at my own pace within the community.”

Given her extensive arts background, Danhauser is excited to incorporate her own flair to the classes at her own Kidcreate Studio franchise by incorporating art techniques, vocabulary, and trendy pop culture references, including the viral video game, “Fortnite”. At the root of it all, Danhauser simply hopes to “provide fuel for creative cognitive processes in order to encourage kids to access creative thought”. 

franchise children's activities

In March 2019, Danhauser opened her first franchise location in the family-focused Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago and has already begun leaving a mark in the Lakeview community through her collaborations with local businesses and schools. Danhauser created “Date Night” events, where children take art classes in the evening at her studio so parents have the freedom to enjoy the nearby restaurants and businesses Danhauser has partnered with. She also created a “Five Days of Giveback” event with a local school to give 15% of the sales made to help fund their supply needs.

Alongside Danhauser’s ability to actively engage her community with art, her ability to demonstrate great flexibility with the community as well as her own family has allowed for Danhauser to make the most of her time with her studio, art, and daughters. 

“As a parent of two girls, I know that life happens sometimes,” Danhauser explains. “We have an open flow of communication at all times so parents know they can always talk to me when a change in school schedule happens. Kidcreate Studio also [gives me] the ability to actively engage with my daughters and have them participate in the business with me.”

Danhauser has found great success and satisfaction with her first Kidcreate Studio location and is actively looking to open a second location in Oak Park, Illinois by November 2019.

“There’s something so much more powerful when you can interact at that close level with your business. It’s even more exciting when you grow it yourself,” Danhauser states.

Our Kid-Friendly Business Model is a Work of Art!

Our Kid-Friendly Business Model is a Work of Art!

art education franchise

in 2007, Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Lara Olson,  had a son in first grade who clearly had a passion for art. The only problem? He was receiving only one hour of art throughout an entire school week. As schools and education continue to gravitate towards STEM-aimed curriculums, it’s important that young children have a way to express themselves creatively. This is precisely why Lara created the art education franchise, Kidcreate Studio – a perfect supplementary alternative for parents who are looking to provide their children with fun, extracurricular art education activities.

“I couldn’t find what I wanted for him. What I wanted was what Kidcreate Studio is today,” Olson said. “I became obsessed with the idea of creating this new environment for children to engage their creativity. It took 12 years to build to this vision, but we’re finally here.”

birthday party business opportunities

So what exactly does “here” mean? “Here” is a technology and device-free art education franchise that is specifically tailored for children. We are the ONLY franchise opportunity in this industry with a brick-and-mortar location as well as an on-the-go mobile program where we can bring the learning and the fun directly to children all over their communities. Our brick-and-mortar location helps distinguish us from all of the tech-heavy, online options that exist in the market today and, combined with our mobile program, creates an impressive 2-in-1 business model that is perfectly suited for everything from weekly classes and camps to workshops, homeschooling options, private classes, birthday parties, and more!

This is in addition to what we consider to be a “pro mess” mentality that encourages kids to be kids. “Making a mess is the best,” is our tagline and these are the words that we live by. This provides a warm invitation for the children attending our classes to get fully involved in their projects and it puts a priority on children’s creativity which benefits the child. For two of our newest Franchise Owners, Jerry and Eric LaMonica, they wanted a franchising opportunity that prioritized the needs of their two young children. This is why they decided to get involved with Kidcreate Studio and, in the fall of 2018, the LaMonicas opened their own studio in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

“We wanted something they could be involved in, which brought us to family-oriented enrichment franchises,” LaMonica explained. “We found Kidcreate Studio included on a list of top emerging franchises and reached out for more information. We immediately fell in love with the people, the leadership and the organization.” There is really nothing else like us out there. Our energetic curriculum and kid-friendly studio space distinguish us, and our On-The-Go program truly sets us apart. We can go anywhere! So far, we’ve been all over the Charlotte metropolitan area.”

Kidcreate Studio Founder Q&A with Star Tribune

Lara Olson is the founder of Kidcreate Studio, an art franchise opportunity that started in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Kidcreate Studio was actually founded back in 2008 as Lara was looking for an opportunity to provide her first-grade son with more exposure to art, outside of the ONE hour a week he was getting in school, but she was unable to find what she was looking for. Wanting to provide children with a fun, art-filled learning environment, Lara decided to create a place that was designed JUST for kids, that combined quality art education, and that provided all of this in a fun, kid-friendly environment.

Thus – Kidcreate Studio was born!

Today, Lara is looking for parents all across the country who are looking for an art franchise opportunity that will help supplement the art education/learning that the children are receiving in their communities. This is why Lara sat down with the Star Tribune to discuss Kidcreate Studio, our business models, and how YOU can bring a Kidcreate Studio to YOUR community!

Art Franchise Opportunity, Kidcreate Studio, is now Franchising Across the Country!

(StarTribune)Q: Why did you decide to franchise?

(Lara Olson, Kidcreate Studio Founder)A: My goal from the beginning was to take a business that does good for kids and get more of them involved. When it came time to make that choice we opened Eden Prairie and that went well and then Woodbury too. Once we were happy with the profitability and the running of the business, we decided to franchise.

Q: How else have you expanded on your original idea?

A: We’ve added birthday parties and summer camps but we have to go where the kids are so we’ve added partnerships with preschools, community-education programs, elementary schools, parks and recreation programs, care programs before and after school, health clubs and golf courses. That’s part of our On-the-Go side.

Q: Elementary schools too?

A: Yes. Some reduced their art programs but we work with districts that may offer it as an after-school program too. We work with a lot of districts like Edina, Eastern Carver County, St. Louis Park, Eden Prairie, and south Washington County.

Q: What’s the revenue breakdown?

A: The On-the-Go side is about 70% of our business. Most of it is school districts and charter schools, then day-care centers and preschools and a sliver of community events. About 30% of revenue are from the studio locations.

Q: What kind of revenue increases has the business seen?

A: We’ve seen year-over-year growth of 20%.

Art-Education Franchise Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary!

Kidcreate Studio Franchise Owner, Carrie Berger, spent 20 years in business administration working for various large Fortune 500 companies. Carrie always had the drive and desire to own her own business but she wasn’t quite sure about which field would suit her best. This was, of course, until she discovered Kidcreate Studio! In fact, THIS MONTH, Carrie and her very own art-education franchise will be celebrating their one-year anniversary!

“Leave the mess here”

This is a common saying at Carrie’s Kidcreate Studio location! What “here” means, though, is constantly changing. An art-education franchise like Kidcreate Studio allows Carrie to offer day camps, provide year-round classes, and host private parties. The fact that Kidcreate Studio is the ONLY art-education franchise opportunity that has both a brick-and-mortar location AND an On-the-Go Studio allows Carrie to bring the party directly to her customers!
