FINE ARTS  

Imagination is woven throughout Trinity's curriculum and appears in many forms. Fine Arts classes draw inspiration from masterpieces in visual art, music, and theater and provide space and support for students' creativity to take wing. Their works – on stage, in chapel, on our walls, and in our web site – bring great delight to the community.

At Trinity we believe that the study of visual and performing arts is a vital component of a well-rounded education.  Through the study of music, drama, and visual arts, our students are encouraged to take risks, build confident self-expression, develop sensitivity to cultural differences, and respect the work of fellow students.  Trinity students build self-esteem and confidence as they master new techniques and develop individual strengths and passions.
 
Exploring the historical and cultural significance of art provides the opportunity for our students to understand and appreciate the role of the artist as historian and creator of new and original modes of perception. Concepts are presented as interdisciplinary whenever possible, allowing Trinity students to discover art's interconnectedness with other subject areas.
 
Trinity students learn not only the academic aspects of the arts – theory, technique, and history – but also the sheer joy of expression.  Whether they're displaying their artwork in formal exhibits, singing in a choir or performing in a play, Trinity students have many opportunities for deep and authentic experiences in the arts.

INSPIRED IMAGINATIONS 

Empathy and creativity are powerful tools for adapting to change and head every list of essential skills for the 21st century. Imagination is at the root of each of these critical capacities.
