The arts—and the National PTA Reflections program—support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in your school community. Illinois PTA encourages all local PTA units to celebrate arts learning with the Reflections program.
Reflections is the National PTA arts program that asks children to get creative! Students are invited to create works of art in any of six different arts categories, reflecting upon a different theme each year. The six arts categories are dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. The theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “Within Reach”
Students can create as many projects as they like, in as many arts categories as they like. Projects can only be submitted through a local unit PTA in good standing. From the local PTA, projects advance through a judging system through council, district, region, state and national levels of the program.
