The Center for Media & the Arts is a state of the art, seventeen room facility, in support of activities and classes in Music, Art, Theater, Graphic Design, Publications, Video, Photography, and Sound Recording Technology. The $300,000 facility opened in September 2000. The Graphic Design studio is equipped with iMac computers and professional design software, as well as a photo darkroom.

Within the seventeen rooms is a six-room professional, digital recording studio. It is fully equipped with digital and analog sound equipment, and can be interfaced with video editing and web equipment. The Center is unique in Western New York on a high school level based upon the design and configuration of the rooms as well as the inherent technology.

Timon is one of a handful of high schools in the United States equipped with a digital recording studio. It is the only high school in Western New York with this equipment. A professional recording engineer is on the faculty. Four of the rooms in the Center are designed and equipped for one-on-one instruction involving classes of six to ten students each.

One major musical Theatre production is presented each year in Timon's 700 seat auditorium as well as one drama production each year.

Art Club meets after school to give the students more time to be creative.
