Reflect on Within Reach

PTA’s national Reflections Art Program has brought the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Reflections 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
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.


All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas: dance/choreography, literature, photography, film production, music composition and visual arts.

All entries must be submitted to the Office by Wednesday, October 25, 2017.
