The Reflections Arts Recognition Program
PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate and explore the arts based on the 2018-2019 theme: “Heroes Around Me”
Reflections 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.
It is very important, that the art works relate to the theme! The participants need to write a 10-100 word artist statement to go with their art piece, which tells the judges how the theme inspired their art work, or how their art work is related to the theme.
Final submission deadline: Friday, October 12, 2018 at 3:00pm at the Brywood office.

Heroes Around Me
Choreograph a dance, produce a film, write a poem or story, compose a song, take a picture, or create a piece of visual art and tell us your interpretation of the theme: “Heroes Around Me”.
Discover your world and explore new cultures or your own through dance, film, literature, music, photography, or visual arts. No experience is required to participate in Reflections! Choose the arts category you’re interested in, create an original piece of artwork based on the theme, and be recognized as an artist in your community.
