The mission of Hanover County Schools' Visual Arts Program is to engage students in thinking creatively and solving problems in order to communicate visually in the 21st century. The universal language of art allows students to make connections and comprehend themes of expression around the world, past and present.

Art at Kersey Creek Elementary School

Students in grades K–5 at Kersey Creek Elementary School attend art once a week for 45 minutes. The content of the elementary art program includes history and cultural studies, core content integration, two-dimensional and three-dimensional techniques and processes, and a variety of topics to encourage creativity and (self) expression.

Students create art with a variety of media (two-dimensional and three-dimensional art forms) and express meaning and values in their art. They develop an understanding that art and culture shape and reflect each other through the study of works of art and the people who created them from other times and places. Students describe, analyze, interpret, and make judgments about works of art based on established visual arts criteria. They also analyze and reflect on their personal responses to works of art. Students reflect on the nature, meaning, and value of art from the viewpoint of both creator and viewer of art.  

We send home artwork throughout the year, and there are many opportunities for us to display the work throughout the school, local library, and at the annual Arts and Science Festival in the spring. The Kersey Creek art room is a place where students can use their imagination and problem solve through their art making.
