National PTA Reflections Arts Program
National PTA Arts Recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.
Students create original works of art in response to a theme. Students from Washington State may submit their works of art in one or all of these categories:
- Music Composition
- Visual Arts
- Special Artist Division
2020-21 Visual Arts Rules *No 3D Visual Arts accepted. LWPTSA and WSPTA only accept 2D Visual Arts entries.
All Reflections program entries are judged on three criteria:
- Interpretation of Theme (40%)
- Creativity (30%)
- Technique (30%)
Notice how heavily “Interpretation of Theme” is weighted? This is what makes the National PTA Reflections Arts Program unique. A well-developed concept is more important than technique.
