Arts and Reflections

For over 50 years, students have been creating original works of art of their own Reflections expressing their hopes, their feelings, and worlds.

The National PTA Reflections Program welcomes students of all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Students reflect on a theme and create original works of art in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students earn positive recognition for their achievements.

Encourage your school community to imagine, create and celebrate with Reflections!
