2023-2024 Reflections Art Program

"I Am Hopeful Because..." Reflections Video


The Reflections Program is a National PTA and Virginia State PTA cultural arts
competition. The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to
use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works.
This program encourages students to explore an idea, centered around a theme in
visual arts, photography, dance choreography, film making, literature, or music
composition. Participation is organized by student age and grade levels. Student
works are critiqued against others in the same grade division. This allows recognition
and judging of artworks by appropriate developmental age and skill levels.
Your child doesn’t have to be a protégé of Monet to participate... Reflections is for everyone!
