From painting sets for the school plays to creating digital art displays for Earth Day, Trinity students love to CREATE.
At Trinity, a comprehensive four-year college preparatory visual arts curriculum as well as our International Baccalaureate two-year programs in IB Art and Design and IB Film are available to all students. In class and through extracurricular opportunities, students hone technical, design, media and conceptual skills. Frequent exhibition events give students the opportunity to participate in as well as curate student exhibits which include annual shows such as the Christmas Fine Arts Evening, the Earth Day Art Exhibit, the IB Art and Design Student Showcases, the IB Film Festival, the Spring Fine Arts Evening and exhibits in the outside community.
Beyond the classroom, students have the opportunity to participate in Trinity sponsored clubs and organizations which build community and promote service through the arts. Students in the National Art Honor Society, TAD (Trinity Advertising and Design Team), the Media Club and Art Club work together to showcase student talent, promote school and community events, raise money through charitable auction events, paint murals, and complete many hours of community service. Those students who choose to continue their studies of the visual arts at the university level are highly prepared with valuable experiences and digital portfolios of their accomplishments.
