Studio Spaces

State-of-the-art studios

Herron’s spacious, well-equipped studios are some of the best you will find anywhere. As a Herron student, you’ll spend a significant amount of time in your studio, conceptualizing, exploring techniques, inventing your personal aesthetic, and maturing as a creative individual.

All seniors have dedicated individual spaces within larger studios. Graduate students and some advanced undergraduates have their own studios.
