The Visual Arts Department at Palmer Trinity School is committed to offering a rich foundation in two- and three-dimensional art in a true studio setting. As practicing artists, our faculty provides hands-on knowledge of contemporary aesthetic practices, a strong background in art history and an active link to the art community in Miami. In the studio we aim to provide a forum for students to visually explore interdisciplinary ideas while mastering materials and techniques presented. We offer a student-oriented curriculum that features diverse activities and addresses individual needs and aspirations.
Message From The Visual Arts Department Chair

These are exciting times at Palmer Trinity and the Visual Arts Department! We currently have five full time Visual Arts instructors, working in their areas of expertise, be they ceramics, painting, or one of the many other excellent course offerings in our department.

Our privilege as art educators is to prepare our students for the world of tomorrow, a world that will need creative minds. We hope that those who take our classes will be one step closer to becoming the innovators of the next generation, helping to come up with new solutions to society’s old (and new) problems.

It is my pleasure to help guide students through the world of self‐expression and my privilege as the department chair to create a visual arts program so strong and enriching that it will be of benefit of the entire school community and a draw to potential students at PTS!
