General Information

The Northville Art House offers small class sizes, therefore we ask that all students pre-register. Instructors design each class with the number of students enrolled and prep the week leading up to the first class. Registration for most programs is through Active.com. Do not see a class you want? Take a survey and share with us your recommendations.
