Art and music are an integral part of the liberal arts foundation offered by Trinity. The Fine Arts Program offers courses in the history of art, studio art, dance, and music, which are viewed as complementary disciplines. Course offerings provide electives for all Trinity students and serve as enrichment for those majoring in a number of other disciplines, such as communication, history, English, business administration, and global studies.
The Fine Arts Program offers minors in fine arts and art history in the College of Arts and Sciences. The minor provides a unique program of study that enables students to explore their creativity through courses in art history, studio art, music, and dance. Through the study of works of art from various periods, students acquire historical consciousness as well as a basic understanding of the methods of visual analysis. Students take field trips to make use of the particularly rich artistic resources of Washington, D.C.
Hands-on experience in studio art forms an integral part of study in fine arts, and each semester an art exhibit, featuring student works, is presented along with student performances of music and dance. Music courses provide an historical framework for understanding diverse traditions as well as opportunities for student performances. Courses also incorporate live performances by drawing on the extensive concert offerings scheduled in Washington D.C.’s museums, galleries, churches, and concert halls.
Students who are interested in completing an individualized major in Fine Arts and Art History should consult the program chair.
