  • Rivellino School of Art

She channels her talents in a cozy studio nestled on the second floor of an old red schoolhouse, minus any dunce caps. While she isn't the only instructor, she oversees and team-teaches every class scheduled, ensuring plenty of one-on-one attention for each student. Together, she and her team train adults and children as young as 4 in the basics of drawing, mosaic, sculpture, textiles, and other arts. In addition, the school holds a monthly international art workshop that explores the artistic tradition of an artist from outside the United States and features snacks and drinks representing his or her culture.

  • Steele Training
    When self-taught photographer Phil Steele was first starting out in his field, he ran into a few walls while seeking more knowledge. Professional photography courses would have been a great place to hone his skills, but they were usually out of his budget. And though he found a lot of free information online, it was often bad advice or highly disorganized. So he cobbled together his own lessons using a mixture of photography books, online and DVD courses, seminars, and practice. After about a decade of absorbing new things and working as a photographer, Steele realized he was in the position to create the type of educational resource he craved as a novice. He founded Phil Steele Photography, which offers online photography and editing courses and free tutorials. His courses range from event photography to Photoshop to Lightroom skills, and he teaches all levels.

  • Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons
    Mike Semerau and the instructors at Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons have a trick up their sleeve. In addition to in-person tutelage, they provide professional pre-recorded take-home videos of proper drumming techniques for students to refer to while practicing. This kind of constant visualization and repetitive watching is what the instructors claim makes their students so successful as they drill new techniques such as double bass, ostinatos, and stick control. During lessons, teachers also cover subjects such as soloing, learning a student’s favorite song, creating original beats and fills, and teaching yourself. Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons has a play-along machine stacked with more than 1,000 songs, all of which have no drum track so that students can provide their own percussion and experience the sensation of playing and keeping time with other instruments.

Our program fosters and celebrates creative expression in young and old, at a completely accessible price. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? You don't need much to write. Students should bring paper, a fast-moving pen, and a commitment to be themselves! What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Creativity is an undervalued force and skill, especially to those who don't think they possess it. It's worth working at. Creativity is entertaining, restorative, and powerful. I'm lucky to have been born with a love for it and a passion for sharing it. What do you love most about your job? Coaching someone to have confidence in their voice gratifies beyond words.
