Reflections Art Program

The Theme for 2021 Reflections: 

I will change the world by ...

Dear Students and Parents,
Our Art Reflections Showcase this year was epic! Live performances, film productions, video, dance, visual arts and more - it was all possible because of your talent and commitment to the arts! Two of our Cal High Students ~ Sia PatelPuri, Dance Choreography and Shivali Pathak, Music Composition ~ have moved on to the Next Level!! All of our participants received medals and trophies and ribbons for their participation. What an exciting event! Art Reflections is a year-long art recognition program awarding students with scholarships and spotlights as they progress towards the National Level. I will keep you posted as two of our Grizzly Students move towards that level.
The theme for Next Year's Art Reflections is coming out soon....
Thank you to everyone who made this event possible and successful - it truly took all hands on deck. 

PTA's Reflections Program encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

Students may submit original creations in one or more of these six categories:

  • Visual Arts
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Dance Choreography
  • Film Production
  • Music Composition
Artwork is submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs. School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration. The final artwork is then submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round. Please review general entry rules.
State-level Award of Excellence honorees receive:
  • The opportunity to showcase their artwork at the California State PTA Convention
  • Prizes including an Award of Excellence medal, certificate and a $100 savings bond presented on stage at convention
  • An expense-paid trip for the award-winning student and one parent/guardian to convention
