Any student can become an IB course candidate while enrolled at Trinity if they meet the prerequisites for that course and receive a teacher recommendation. IB visual art and music courses may be taken individually or as an elective for IB diploma candidates.
Visual arts classes at Trinity are designed to prepare students for IB courses if they so choose by introducing students to peer critiques, artist statements, and risk taking in the beginning courses.
Similarly, music courses introduce and develop skills such as theory and performance needed for IB music. The IB music courses lead students in a challenging exploration of music theory, music history, world music cultures, performance and composition.
Any students interested in enrolling in IB visual art or music should meet with both his or her current art instructor and the appropriate art department head prior to the class registration period in the second semester of his or her freshman year.
