Reflections Art Program
PTA Reflections Arts Program
The Theme for 2023-24 Reflections:
I am Hopeful Because.
The Reflections Art Program is a national program that celebrates art and creativity in our children. It is the perfect opportunity for students, K - 12, to express themselves artistically. Whether by visual art, film, or dance, Reflections is the chance to show your artistic side.
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:
Student Entry Packet including entry form and rules, available in English and Spanish
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.
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 the convention
An expense-paid trip for the award-winning student and one parent/guardian to the convention
Congratulations to ALL of our 2022-2023 Student Artists!!
