    I am very excited to have your children in my class this year at BBES!
    Students in Loudoun County in grades 1-5 receive art education once a week for 50 minutes and
    kindergarten receives 30 minutes per week.
    .  During that time they are instructed on art making, art history, art criticism and personal expression.

     "The aim of art education in the public schools is not to make more
    professional artists but to teach people to live happier, fuller lives; to
    extract more out of their experience, whatever that experience may be."
