While Visual Art is a compulsory component of the curriculum for Trinity boys in Years 7 to 9, and an elective subject in Years 10 to 12, a full range of Visual Art disciplines are available as optional co-curricular activities to all boys in Years 10 to 12. Trinity provides ‘Artists in Residence’ who work with students to develop their skills in a variety of media. Boys may participate in small group excursions to specific locations to create their artworks. They may also be involved in large group projects in a range of different activities. The options available include Photography and Digital Media, Ceramics, Computer Graphics, Painting and Drawing.
