Eight Saturdays! February 16 – April 13 (No classes March 9 during IUPUI Spring Break)
Saturday School classes offer opportunities to improve art skills, try new art forms, and build a portfolio. Established in 1922, Saturday School offers quality art instruction to youths and adults each fall and spring. Classes take place in state-of-the-art facilities at Herron School of Art and Design’s Eskenazi Hall on the IUPUI campus and at Herron's Eskenazi Fine Arts Center, on the north edge of campus. Eight-week classes offer options for youths in grades 2 through 12 and adults.
Herron junior or senior students teach Saturday School classes. Class size is limited to allow for highly individualized instruction in a variety of media including ceramics, printmaking, drawing, painting and more.
Saturday School culminates with an Open House exhibition and awards ceremony held on the last Saturday afternoon of each session (no morning classes) and sponsored in part by The Great Frame Up and Prizm – The Artist’s Supply Store.
