Herron’s ceramics curriculum develops your understanding of the medium in the context of contemporary society and historical tradition. You will gain skills in analysis of specific works of art that are developed through courses in art theory, art history, research methods, and the uses of materials and tools needed to create works of art. Students study specific periods, cultures, styles, and themes that exist in the field of art. The ceramics program is supported by lavish space and equipment in the heart of 16 Tech, an innovation community in Indianapolis.
Skills and abilities this major develops include: understanding historical contexts, analysis, fine art skills, and cultural competency (Herron School of Art and Design, 2017).
