All IU Indianapolis students may enroll in Herron’s elective classes to pursue creative interests while completing arts and humanities requirements.
The basic objective is to provide a studio experience to those who do not wish to pursue a degree in visual arts. Introductory courses on a variety of topics are offered each semester.
Generally, these courses require no or modest prerequisites. They develop a student's appreciation for the visual arts through drawing, painting, photography, ceramics and more. They providing hands-on experiences that develop critical thinking, cultural understanding and, ultimately, prepare individuals to be visually literate citizens.
Whether for personal enrichment or as a required component of a major outside Herron, Elective Arts students develop artistic skills and gain a keen understanding of aesthetics through their own creations.
You must be a current IU Indianapolis student to enroll in a Herron elective. Tuition and lab fees apply.
