Arts

The Treamis Arts Division comprises the departments of Visual Arts, Dance & Music. It provides much more than a classroom experience for our students and each department offers studio, non-performing, and performing settings and maintains a well-balanced education that focuses equally on the process of learning as well as the product of our efforts. We believe it is vital that we provide experiences to students that will instill a life-long love for, appreciation of, and involvement in the arts. As such, the Art department supplements our curricular offerings exposing students to an amazing number of opportunities to be involved in exhibits, concerts, recitals and other collaborative performance opportunities.

We believe that the study of fine art is important to everyone at both the individual and societal levels. Students experience the actual application of knowledge and skills on a daily basis with culminating work often approaching or achieving professional levels. The program challenges students to think creatively, encourages risk taking and enables students to apply their problem-solving skills beyond the classroom.

Ultimately, we take great pride that within the Arts Division, we don’t simply read or learn about our subjects; we dance, sing, paint, and sculpt. And, we openly share our work with our peers and our community.

This is reflected not only in the styles of music the students learn, but also the means of experiences used to understand and appreciate music intellectually. Often when we learn songs from other countries or different parts of India. There are students who have a firsthand experience with the song or the language or both. Parents and teachers sometimes share songs and dances from their homeland.
