Whether our students are sketching a self-portrait, sculpting a clay mask, spinning a bowl at the pottery wheel, or developing black and white film in the dark room, our fine arts courses aim to inspire. Our classes allow students to dive into a medium that supports their interests and experience, with an array of choices from foundation-level to advanced.
Trinity-Pawling is proud that many of our artistically gifted students pursue the arts in college. Our students have attended top NASDA, NACAC-accredited, and NPDA-member programs across the United States, including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), Rhode Island School of Design, the Corcoran School of Art and Design at George Washington University, and more.
Seeing a boy succeed in an area where he didn't have prior experience is fantastic. 'Did you ever imagine you could draw - or paint, or act, or sculpt - like this?' They just light up with a genuine sense of accomplishment.
