Register today for Fall Classes!
The Northville Art house classes and workshops run daily from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm. We pride ourselves in offering small class sizes for both our 6 week classes and workshops, because of this we ask that all students pre-register. Walk-in and last minute registrations may not be accommodated. Pre-registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is required to guarantee supplies. Registration forms and full “tuition” payment must be received before the first class.
Classes require at least three students enrolled in order to run or they will be cancelled. The Northville Art House reserves the right to cancel any class for any reason. In this event, students will receive a full refund. The Northville Art House does not prorate classes. A 50% refund will be given to any student who cancels their registration before the first class. After the first class, no refund will be given. Please note that some classes have an additional materials fee. These fees are payable to the instructor. Class prices are listed for members (M) and non-members (NM). Registration online or in person starts August 14th for 2017 fall classes.
