Visual Arts

Trinity’s art curriculum follows the pedagogy of TAB, or Teaching Artistic Behaviors, a methodology that is student-focused, choice-based and teacher-facilitated.

The learning environment is designed to provide centers or mini art studios complete with instructional information, menus, resources, materials and tools. Students make a choice, moving independently between centers, utilizing materials, tools and resources as needed in their art making, such as painting, clay or printmaking. Students have to use higher level critical-thinking skills to strategically manage time as they move between materials and mediums to experience the full artistic process.

We value the process of art as children as well as students as artists. It is the responsibility of the art teacher to guide students through the art curriculum in an engaging and thought-provoking way. Edmund Feldman states, “…art is a universally human act,” so its importance is held in high regard. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the art room at Trinity Episcopal School where students are given the opportunity to learn while engaged in the process of creating something new.

We take pride in the intentional integration of art within core subject learning. Each year, we display each grade-level’s artwork at our annual Arts Festival in May, where almost every surface of the school is covered in our parent, faculty/staff and student creations.

Performing Arts

Trinity’s performing arts program reflects our commitment to a well-rounded liberal arts education with a focus on each student’s creative expression. All students take general music which emphasizes creativity, music appreciation, musical literacy and performance preparation. The music program provides many opportunities for individual growth and fosters every child’s innate love of music.

Lower School

Beginning in fourth-grade, students may choose from one of three ensembles: chorus, strings or band. These Gr. 4-8 ensembles perform in Chapel performances and formal concerts throughout the year.

Beyond musical theory, our Lower School students experience the world of drama through grade-level productions throughout the year such as:

  • Gr. 1: Fairy Tale Plays
  • Gr. 2: The Jungle Book
  • Gr. 3: Castle Play
  • Gr. 4: Grammar Pirates
  • Gr. 5: Shakespeare Play
Middle School

In addition to music ensembles (chorus, strings or band), our Middle School students also have the opportunity to showcase their talent and passion for drama through our Fall and Spring Musical productions and our Winter Play.
