TAC offers Visual Arts and Music electives for two hours a week in Prep, 9th and 10th grades. The aim of these courses is to help students with developing their knowledge, skills and terminology in visual arts and music, exploring what they see and listen and creating original products of their own in these areas. 
The student will also know more about art history which forms the basis of applied studies. Art periods throughout history including Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Modern and Post-Modern are studied with artists which represent each period. The importance of art in societies is explored by establishing connections between the social structure and leading artistic products of each period. Student learning is reinforced with the exhibitions which has a given art movement as its theme.
Our main goal is for our students to find their own areas of strength in art and learn about basic art terminologies so that they can talk about, share and reproduce arts.
