HOW OUR STORY

BEGAN

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 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 was born!

THE BENEFITS

OF ART

Art teaches math, science, history, and creativity and best of all, art makes learning fun. Maybe that is why children who participate in the arts are more likely to excel at school and in life! Children benefit from creating art as it helps build confidence, problem solving skills, and social skills. But, art can also help a child become a better student. Studies show that art education has a measurable positive impact on academics.

ART & THE ACT

The ACT is one the most important factors to determine which students will attend college. A few points make a difference in a student ending up at a “first-choice” school or not. According to a 2011–12 study by the West Virginia Dep. of Education, students with more art credits performed better on the ACT.

ART & ACHIEVEMENT

Different art forms benefit students differently. Visual arts “improve writing; reading skills, interpretation of text, reasoning about scientific images and reading readiness.” Pursuing a combination of arts like drama, music, and visual arts “helps with reading, verbal and math skills; collaboration and advanced thinking skills.”

ART & BEHAVIOR

A 2010 report compiled by the Missouri Dep. of Education and the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education found that students more involved in art, were less likely to have disciplinary problems. For example, those involved in art were more likely to go to all classes, not just art classes and ultimately graduate.

THE ART OF NON-DIGITAL FUN

Making a mess and having fun is what Kidcreate Studio is really all about. Getting your kids off their digital devices, out into a social space with friends while learning and experience a fading yet essential aspect of childhood education.

Another bonus? While your children are having fun and learning with art, you get to enjoy some essential “Me Time.”

OUTSTANDING

CURRICULUM
