About Reflections

Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life.

Students create original works of art in response to a theme. The theme for the 2019-2020 program year is Look Within

A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas. Only original works of art are accepted. The six art areas are:

Participation is organized by student age and grade levels. Student works are critiqued against others in the same grade division.
