What the Business Does
Provides art education for kids in a fun way. Founder Lara Olson told Small Business Trends, “Kidcreate Studios specializes in children’s art classes, camps and art-themed birthday parties for children ages 18 months to 12 years. Classes are provided both in-studio and On-The-Go, where kids can learn about art techniques, concepts, as well as art history. Each location also sells educational products including art kits, books and supplies.”
Offering different options. Olson says, “Kidcreate Studio is different from any competitors in that they are the only concept that has both in-studio and On-The-Go classes.”
How the Business Got Started
Because of a frustration with art education.
Olson says, “After being discouraged by my son Jake’s lack of art education in school, I was inspired to start Kidcreate Studio. Jake was very frustrated in most of his classes but found joy and solace in art. I could relate to this feeling, as I felt the same way when I was Jake’s age. Since Jake did not have nearly enough time every week doing what he loved, I decided to create a place where kids could experience art enrichment outside of school. We opened our first location in Eden Prairie in 2008.”
