Saturday School classes for high school students

High school Saturday School students are creative, determined, and eager to learn how to study the arts in a university setting.

Aspiring artists who attend Saturday School come to improve their skills by learning new fine arts and design concepts, techniques, and technologies. They are eager and talented, and they tell us they want to “improve skills and meet other artists.”

Herron’s alternative studio lessons introduce students to concepts and methods that will help them pursue their creative goals.
