Only professional, skilled, agency-represented actors, improvisers, writers, and comics lead our classes. That’s because we believe that the very best people to teach you how to do the job you want are those who already have that job. Additionally, most of our instructors are multi-disciplined. So learn from the professionals who have already been there, done that, and are still in the industry!


Whether you are interested in becoming a professional or just looking to make new friends, build essential life skills, or try something new, we’re sure to have a class for you! We offer classes in acting, improv, stand-up, and screenwriting with offerings for all ages, abilities, and interest levels. We’re eager to help each student accomplish their goals, whatever they may be!


Only fraudulent studios guarantee success or make promises of getting you to Hollywood. We will never make baseless guarantees to our students. Instead, we offer legitimate, skills-focused training comparable to what you’d see in a larger market. It’s just one of the reasons we’re the highest-rated studio in the Northeast and known by top coaches, agents, and casting directors.

"I have worked in the proverbial "industry" for about 25 years now as an improv instructor in Chicago, an acting teacher in Chicago, L.A. and Atlanta, and a development executive for a top production company in L.A. I can say without hesitation that what Keary and Rebecca are doing is top notch, no bullshit, no snake oil training for the performer - whether its stand-up, acting or otherwise. This is the place to train!​"

"Taking Keary's comedy class was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. After four weeks I had a solid understanding of how to turn and “idea” into an actual joke ( you know, with a set up and a punchline and everything,) how to craft a set and how to get on stage with confidence even when I was a nervous wreck. If you are on the fence at all, all I can say is DO IT!!!!! I promise you won’t regret it."

"I can not recommend Creative Veins enough. I was Keary's very first stand-up comedy student when the studio opened in 2016 and I've studied acting as well. My experience with them has been nothing short of life-changing. When it comes to the performing arts, there is no better place to learn it, do it, or see it than Creative Veins."
Tyronne Thornhill
2018 Void Magazine's Comic of the Year
“We hired Keary to teach acting at our Just Like Me Camp and he really went above and beyond. Not only was his class a hit with the campers but he wrote, shot, and edited an original film and created several truly amazing visuals for the show which really took the production value to the next level.”
