Looking For Something To Beat the End of Summer “Boredom?” Make Art!
Now is the perfect time to start working on entries for the 2019-2020 PTA Reflections Art Contest!
This Year’s Theme is “Look Within.”
Each year, across America, hundreds of thousands of students, of all abilities – in preschool through grade 12, create and submit original art work in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.
Reflections is a program which encourages students to explore the arts and express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Since it was founded in 1969 by Mary Lou Anderson, millions of students have benefited from this program. In the past few years we have had students win ribbons and medals at the County and District levels and prize money at the State and National levels. We hope to see that tradition continue next year.
Summer is a great time to work on Reflections Art Work to submit in the Fall (entries due to the JB Watkins front office by Friday, October 4, 2019). The theme this year is exciting and lends itself to many different interpretations and will give students and parents a wonderful opportunity to reflect on and talk together about its meaning. These conversations will give great scope to imagination and open the door for the wonderful creation of art. If you have an artist that would like to enter the Reflections Contest please email Kimberly Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and information.
