Drawing and Illustration

Herron School of Art and Design

As a Herron illustration and drawing student, you will be trained to create images that are both visually arresting and rich in content. The combined and overlapping disciplines of drawing and illustration will give you a uniquely well-rounded foundation for any direction you choose to follow.

Fine art drawing classes encourage students to think abstractly and to experiment with nontraditional media and concept-based work. Illustration classes focus on visually communicating specific narrative or emotional content.

You will ultimately create a body of work that is large in scope and advances a personal vision.

Degree Maps

One of the most difficult tasks of being a college student is figuring out what classes to take and when to take them. In order to make the process a little easier, each major at IUPUI has its own degree map outlining the path you should take to graduate as quickly as possible.
