Chicago Magic College

The Chicago MAgic Lounge is now offering MAgic Classes

The mission of the Chicago Magic College is to develop, support and grow the magic community. The courses are designed not only to teach you magic tricks, but also to provide you with an appreciation for Chicago's contribution to the art. We will offer a range of classes for students of all experience levels – from the magic enthusiast looking to entertain friends and family to the professional magician who wants to refine their performance and technique.

Please note: Students must be 18 years or older to participate.


Chicago-Style Magic : Level One

6 week course: Saturdays August 11 - September 22 @ 3 - 5pm

Showcase: Sunday, September 23 @ 6:30pm

Instructor: John Sturk

For the first time ever, we have created a class dedicated to the style of magic that was developed right here in the Windy City. Learn the secrets of magic luminaries, such as Matt Schulien, Heba Haba Al, Johnny Paul, and dozens of others who paved the way to what would become known the world over as 'Chicago-Style Magic.'

This course is designed for non-magicians who want to learn how to perform a few tricks and practicing magicians looking to hone their skills in Chicago-style magic. No performance experience necessary. Class size is limited to 10 students in order to ensure maximum attention from the instructor. 

Please note: There will be no class on Saturday, September 1st in observance of Labor Day.
