2019-2020 Theme: Look Within

Looking for something interesting to do over summer? GET INSPIRED by the Reflections Arts Program. Gather up some art supplies, writing paper or an old camera and tell your kids that the 2019-20 Reflections Art Program theme is "Look Within".  Let their imaginations take them on an art adventure!

Students nationwide will reflect on the theme and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Use some of those lazy days of summer to create something spectacular!

Learn more about the Reflections Art Program at the CAPTA Reflections Page and the CAPTA Rules and Guidelines Page.

Contact PTA at your school for more information on deadlines and submission forms at your school. For general questions, email us at reflections@srvcouncilpta.org.

PTA's Reflections program encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired

  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork

  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
