What is the PTA Reflections Art Program?

In short, it is a recognition program designed to encourage students to explore the arts. All ages and abilities are encouraged to apply. View the video on the program's 50th year!

My child is interested, how can I help them get started?

For younger students, the concept of a theme is a foreign one. Parents may have to explain what a theme is. Essentially, a theme is an underlying message or the big idea of a story. It is a message that can be applied in their own life. The National PTA Reflections program encourages students in Preschool through Grade 12 to create and submit original works of art in the medium of their choice— dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts — reflecting on a specific theme. If your child has a passion for the arts, this is a wonderful way to express their unique creativity! 


This is your child's chance to express who they are as an individual through one or more of the following: 
Dance Choreography Dance Choreography
Film Production Film Production
Literature Literature
Music Composition Music Composition
Photography Photography
Visual Arts Visual Arts
