Welcome to art education at BPES!

The art room at Battlefield Park is a special place where students create and explore different forms of art.  Weekly, students in kindergarten through fifth grade come into the art room for 45 minutes.  During that time, students explore art history, aesthesis, and art criticism.  Students are exposed to a variety of media and processes by which they exercise new found skills in creative problem solving.  As with all disciplines taught at Battlefield Park, Virginia Standards of Learning serve as a basis for instruction.

Battlefield Park Elementary actively seeks opportunities to exhibit fine art produced by our children.  Throughout the year you can view works of art in the halls and office of our school, as well as the offices of the Hanover School Board.  Additionally, Hanover County’s annual Arts and Science Festival, which is held in the spring, provides an excellent setting for the exhibition and appreciation of truly fine work.

We at Battlefield Park certainly feel art is basic to learning and provides experiences that enrich a child’s total learning.  Please feel free to drop by and see our artist at work!
