The Arts Department 

The arts curriculum emphasizes four central ideas: developing creativity, communicating, understanding culture, and making connections. The arts at Holy Trinity - drama, music, and the visual arts - play a valuable role in the education of all students. Through the arts, students develop their creativity and learn about their identity, develop self-awareness, self-confidence, and a sense of well-being. The arts nourish the imagination and develop a sense of beauty, while providing unique ways for students to gain insights into the world around them. Students communicate their insights while developing artistic skills and aesthetic judgment. All of the arts make connections among movement, space, texture, and environment and encourage the exploration of new modes of artistic expression. 

Dramatic Arts

In dramatic arts, students learn in a unique way about themselves, the art of drama, and the world around them. Students engage in social interaction and collaboration as they create, perform, and analyse drama.   In these courses, they will experience being performer, audience, playwright, technician, designer, and critic. By communicating in both their real and imagined worlds, students acquire proficiency in listening, speaking, questioning, and problem solving. (65)


Students will find in music a source of enjoyment and personal satisfaction and will gain creative problem-solving skills, individual and cooperative work habits, knowledge of themselves and others, a sense of personal responsibility, and connections to their communities and future careers. (101)

Visual Arts & CERamics

Within the visual arts courses, visual literacy expands into a broader perception – turning seeing into vision, translating reality into symbols and connections, and enhancing all other learning experiences. Learning in, about, and through visual arts helps students use their imagination and make creative choices to communicate their ideas, observations, feelings, and values. (117)
