Reflections "Believe, Dream, Inspire" - Our Reflections Arts Recognition Program submissions deadline is October 14th. Every participant will be recognized and prizes will be awarded. If you can write, draw or paint, choreograph a dance, compose music, produce a film or photograph an image, you may enter Reflections. The theme this year is "Believe, Dream, Inspire." Judges pay close attention to the artist statement which must accompany your submission. The statement must illustrate an understanding of the theme in conjunction with the artistic creation. Please support your student(s) in this endeavor.
The Reflections Arts Recognition Program is a national PTA program that increases community awareness of the importance of the arts in education for students.
This program helps our students tap into the critical thinking skills necessary to create art inspired by the annual theme. It also provides an opportunity for students to express themselves imaginatively in their artwork while experiencing the joy and fun of making art.
Entry forms and guidelines may be picked up in the office, or you may email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. Thank you for your support!
