INRA offers classes at all levels in the different rosemaling styles. Classes are open to anyone who becomes a member.

Typically for our classes:

  1. Instructions and a required materials list (paints, brushes) are included with the class information packet provided to students after registration.
  2. Preparation of woodenware including application of design must be completed prior to class.
  3. Steps will be demonstrated by the teacher and the student will be able to paint areas demonstrated.

In 2020, INRA began offering online classes. Students must be able to connect to the internet and have camera capability on their computer/tablet/device.
