    Stephanie was our artist for the day. She was knowledgable, fun, helpful, and very chill. You could tell she loved what she was doing and she hyped us all up! The environment was wonderful and artsy. I would definitely go back!

    We had a blast. We decided that we wanted to go "do" rather than go drink and eat. Well, we did drink, but that wasn't the focus. In fact, we were so occupied we didn't drink as much as if we were going to spend that same 2 1/2 hours together. My point is, it was a fun, creative and healthy night. We could actually have a conversation and catch up, which was our intent. There was music, but didn't have to shout. On anther point, that neighborhood is a big surprise. It's so grown up and gentrified. It was cool being there. The staff was so welcoming and the leader was fun and encoraging. Maybe one bit of advice... go early, parking is tricky.

    This class was a highlight of my time in Chicago. James had a detailed PowerPoint that guided us through the details, as well as lots of practice and testing. He was generous with his information and I had lots of questions about how to create good sound quality for research interviews which he happily answered. James has deep experience in Podcasting so it was like learning from a Master. I’m from Australia but the content was still completely relevant.

    I stopped in to make presents for family members. Many choices and decided on Christmas Plates! Had tremendous fun creating my own designs. Thought I would do one, did several. No rush, relaxing. Music in background and owners were incredibly helpful. Can’t wait to get back. Great thing about the plates, those receiving have something totally unique!

    This is a gorgeous building that houses an art school and has ongoing exhibits in the front rooms of this historic structure. I've been there for a two gallery shows. The rooms are majestic which adds to the ambiance while viewing art. It is not open all the time so check the website for upcoming shows and classes. Outstanding artists teach the classes-- many very classical like oil painting, pastels, watercolor and life drawing. Even if you are not planning to purchase art, plan on stopping by sometime when there is a are exhibit going on, to step inside and enjoy the experience. Often they will have a banner sign outside in the front of the building announcing the times/dates of the current or upcoming shows. There is a set of stairs to enter the building and I'm not aware one way or the other if there is an accessible entrance.

    We had a fun girls night at Bottle & Bottega South Loop. Started out w/wine then got to work on our paintings. Instructors were excellent! I have attended other company"s where the artist kept his back to us the whole time. Bottle & Bottega had great background music, lots of assistants to help w/questions. There was a group of very loud patrons, who's voices were annoyingly distracting. Majority of patrons were just having fun without disrupting others. The space is compact, but the ambience made up for the tight quarters. I would highly recommend this location. And a special shout-out to our Artist du jour, Curtis, for his patience with our large group of ladies.

We got tired of the every other attraction . This painting studio was great!! We had a wonderful time painting glasses ! The host an artist himself was very professional and helpful . Nice basement studio everything drawing,pottery, and sculpting. You’ll love this place .
