The Norwin Art League will re-opening on April 5, 2021.

ALL CLASSES will practice Social Distancing and will follow CDC Guidelines which means YOU MUST WEAR A MASK.  Maximum  number of students is fifteen (12).  ALL classes must be paid MONTHLY.  If you can’t attend a class, you may make up the class within a couple of weeks or you will lose the money.  Because we only have 12 seats available, we can’t afford to have students say that they are attending and then not follow through.

Norwin Art League offers weekly classes for all skill levels in oil painting and watercolors.

Instructors Joe and Mike will alternate with each conducting a two week session.  Elmer will have the flexibility to offer a class when able.  The instructors would adjust their schedule accordingly.  We hope that having exposure to different instructors, each with their own unique style, will provide the class with a broader experience in the creative use of watercolors.  The class will attempt to accommodate all levels of skills, beginner to seasoned artist!  Use the class registration form to enroll.  New registrations will be accepted and notified if there is room in the class.
