2017 Theme: Within Reach

Due: Friday, November 3 to Fowler Front Office

Print forms and rules at: http://www.txpta.org/reflections

 

The Reflections program recognizes students at the Local, Council/Region, State and National PTA levels. At each level, all entries are judged on interpretation of the theme, creativity and artistic merit.  The Reflections program is open to all Texas students whose parents are members of their school PTA. Students may enter any or all of the following six art categories:

 

Dance Choreography

 

Film Production

 

Literature

 

Music Composition

 

Photography

 

Visual Arts

 

Review Criteria

  • Interpretation: How closely the piece relates to the theme, based on the artwork itself and the artist statement.
  • Creativity: How creative and original the piece is in its conception of the theme and its presentation.
  • Technique: The level of skill demonstrated in the basic principles/techniques of the arts area.

In your artist statement, tell us about your work and what it means to you.

  • How does your work relate to the theme?
  • What is your personal connection to the theme?
  • What did you use to create your work (e.g. supplies, technology, instrumentation, props, etc.)? 
  • What/Who was your inspiration?

Multiple entries within a single arts category is permitted.  Each entry must be the original work of one student and created specifically for the Reflections program based on the national theme. Each entry must also conform to the guidelines developed by the National PTA.
