Julie is a wonderful instructor! She is engaging and thoughtful, and she provides clear instructions and advice. She took time to ask me my specific goals for my first lesson, and after just one class, I already feel much more confident in my photography skills! I am a super beginner, and am looking forward to continuing to work with Julie to improve my skills.

About Marlisa
I am a potter who specializes in functional tableware. I teach in my studio and also at local art centers. I teach throwing on the potter's wheel and hand-building. My work has been exhibited in national juried shows.

I also am a textile artisan. My love is doll-making, in the Waldorf style. I teach knitting (Continental style), crochet, and sewing.

My other love is gardening. I grow tree and herbaceous peonies. My cottage style garden is planted for fragrance and naturalness. I emphasize growing perennials because their beauty increases each year.

I have had nothing but the best experience working with Marlisa. She is patient, she takes the time to verify that you've grasped a concept you're struggling with and works to find the best way to communicate with YOU. I don't think anyone would regret spending an hour or two learning and chatting with Marlisa. I feel so inspired and more confident each time I leave a session. If you're on the fence about trying this; don't hesitate!

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

Marlisa is an awesome teacher. I took a pottery class at Glen Echo years ago and was very disappointed, but with Marlisa's excellent teaching skills and enthusiasm for the art, I left her studio feeling like I wanted to buy a wheel and start throwing. I appreciate her hands-on approach and always felt taken care of attended to. Marlisa is a true artist and excellent teacher!!! I highly recommend her.

It is hard to get a lot out of a lesson doing it remotely. And in one hour! She was wonderful but I think I would like to try lessons either in a group setting or individual face to face. That way she could help me correct mistakes as I go.

About Drea
I have been in the creative industry since I was a child. I have been singing since I came out of the womb! And doing photography since high school. I am now in front and behind the camera as an actress/on camera host, and I am a professional photographer/videographer. I have behind the camera for companies such as VH1, MTV, Fuse TV, and the New York Post. In front of the camera, you have probably seen me in films such as Relativity Media's, "Act of Valor," "Baby Mama" (Opp Tina Fey/Sigourney Weaver), and Chris Rock's "I Think I Love my Wife." My experience both in front and behind the camera compliments each other as I understand what is needed for both positions. I try to keep my lessons informative and fun! -- Anything can be achieved if you take your time and you really want it.

I teach both in front and behind the camera :

My instructor Drea was a very was a very Patient and was prepared for our lessons. She sends an email and get a basic understanding of what your goals are what type of equipment you're planning on using and if she is unfamiliar with you for particular camera she does her research and is prepared to answer you any of your questions. I would recommend taking photography classes from her, I intend to continue taking lessons from Drea she is a treasure trove of knowledge.

Steve did a great job, was thorough and patient. He knows the program well and is equally adept at explaining the concepts behind what he's doing. That's a difficult thing for a teacher and Steve did an excellent job of it. Highly recommend!

Noelle’s teaching style is adjusted for each student in a personalized way, depending on how the student learns. She teaches with verbal explanation and visual demonstration, including helping guide the student to create the art themself.

Her goal is to help you reach your goals as an artist.

Noelle will provide an encouraging atmosphere with positive reviews along with helpful insights in making your artwork even better.

Noelle’s art has shown in multiple locations including Tahoe Art League Galleries, restaurants, and group shows in Nevada and California. She has done l
ive painting and drawing in front of church services, group meetings and in public places.

Noelle has worked in many mediums and in multiple styles. Her primary medium of choice is oil and her favorite style is realism mixed with fantasy. She greatly enjoys painting humans and animal portraits.

I took several art classes from Noelle and she was a great instructor. I'm not an artist, and wasn't feeling very confidant, but Noelle made me feel at ease and helped me understand "how" to paint to make it look good. I learned a lot and would recommend her to most anyone who is interested in learning how to paint or even for those who already know how to paint. I watched her relate to other students of all skill level with patience, knowledgeableness, acceptance and encouragement. She's really good at connecting with others and their art work!

About Rush
I'm hoping to get to work with students who want to dive right into mastering their camera and all it has to offer, whether we're shooting on film or digital, both of which I can offer instruction in. Learning to be in absolute control of your camera and how your settings will affect your photos is key to creating your images & making sure they come out exactly the way you envision them. Our time together will be a full immersion into light-writing. Over the years, I have had approximately 4 years of cumulative formal instruction on the subject, and have been freelancing since 2011, for events such as weddings, anniversaries, baby/bridal showers, graduation and engagement photos, live concerts, and just about anything else you can think of. Previously a Photography student of Daytona State College in Florida, I made the move up to Chicago
in 2015, and am currently studying at Harold Washington College. In the spring I will graduate with my Art Studio AFA. I genuinely look forward to any time spent with someone with a desire to hone their craft, and hope to bring more inspiration to those wanting to bring forth their vision. Aside from photography, I also teach a handful of other subjects that you or someone else may be interested in!

guitarist in a local Chicago band LOOMS. a year ago we asked Rush to design a flier for some of our upcoming shows. we were so in love with what he made for us, that I ended up reaching out on my own to ask for photoshop tips. we did one "formal" lesson (this was before he was registered on the website) and man we covered a lot in 45 mins. i was surprised when rush told me he is still in school. you would have no idea from the way he conducts his lessons.

As a seasoned takelessons teacher myself, I was enthralled with Rush's professionalism and deep understanding of photography.
Many of my own students are adults who now finally have the time to learn something they've always wanted to do. So, I decided to follow my little long-term dream of learning more about photography, and boy am I glad I did! Rush is kind and patient, and has a knack for lesson personalization. I can't wait for our next lesson!!
