Visual Arts

A Historical and Present-Day Perspective

Students experiment with art materials and investigate the history of art and the ideas and themes of different movements and periods.  As they move through our arts curriculum, students learn how the elements of design such as line, shape, form, texture, color and space can be manipulated as they express themselves visually.  Themes for art projects often correlate with other aspects of the curriculum, thereby deepening the experience.

Trinity students visit museums and historical sites, meet artists, and make art. They learn to understand the visual world around them and to recognize the meaning and impact of different works, artists, and ideas. 

Two dedicated art studios with resources and materials to support drawing, painting, sculpture, and ceramics (with two kilns located on-site) provide our students with the tools they need to explore this rich subject area.
