More than 10,000 students. That’s how many aspiring guitarists instructor Eric Mantel—an artist on three-time Grammy winner Steve Vai's Digital Nations record label—has reached since he began teaching in 1979. His guitar lessons cover a broad range of strumming techniques, from picking and finger rolling to trilling and vibrato. And to inspire his students, Eric pulls from the repertoire of guitar greats such as Eddie Van Halen and Eric Clapton.

At FieldCrest School of Performing Arts, students ascend through three levels of stardom—I'm a Star (for toddlers through preteens), Fashion Plate (for toddlers through preteens), and Camera Ready (for teens)—through bundles of acting, modeling, and dance classes that build a solid foundation of arts education. Acting classes build upon pantomime and improv before moving into performance and technique, and modeling sessions teach students how to prowl and pose like a pro on the catwalk. Ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop lessons give pupils the grace and moves they need to perform classical and contemporary routines.

Since its founding in 1977, FieldCrest has cultivated a motivational environment that encourages self-expression and poise. Besides arts classes, it also offers etiquette courses that can convert even the most slovenly kids and adults into Miss Manners devotees.

In 2009, Linda and Greg Racino were reaping the benefits of more than two fast-paced decades in the tech industry. Something was missing, though—creativity. So in February of that year the couple left behind the cold digital world for a brightly colored studio warmed by a blazing kiln. Lining their shelves with finished and unfinished clay and glass pieces, the Racinos today deal solely in creation. They guide customers through pottery painting and glass fusing—from picking out a blank bisque piece to arranging a unique design of glass pieces. Guests can also check out the calendar of events to learn about upcoming discounts and special projects, or to find out what day it is.

As patio umbrellas shield a row of tables from the summer sun, rows of thick, green trees—or perhaps thousands of patio umbrellas—outline the horizon, looming past the undulating fairways and greens of Coyote Run Golf Course. Here at Wiley's Grill, golfers can rest their weary legs after a hot afternoon on the links or even during the winter, warming up on cups of turkey chili and craft beer next to the indoor fireplace. While enjoying an Angus burger or plate of tangy glazed salmon, patrons can watch TVs broadcasting Chicago sports before honing their skills on the indoor golf simulator.
