ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The WVHS PTA believes all students deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in the annual Arts PTA Reflections Program. The National PTA Reflections program is designed to enhance a quality arts education by providing opportunities for students to express themselves and to receive positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit works of art in six areas: VISUAL ARTS, DANCE, FILM PRODUCTION, LITERATURE, MUSICAL COMPOSITION, and PHOTOGRAPHY. Important Note: Each student is encouraged to make and keep a copy of their submitted work. Some projects may not be returned safely or timely, and work will not be returned by the National PTA. Deadline Date: All entries must be received by 9:00 am on Monday, November 12, 2018.
A completed and signed official student entry form must be attached to each entry; the artist statement is very important. Please see links below for entry forms and rules or go to http://www.illinoispta.org/reflections.html.
Please email me at email@example.com when you drop off your submission. I will confirm receipt. Special Artist: This is a non-graded division limited to students whose physical, cognitive or mental health challenges meet the guidelines set forth in the American Disabilities Act. Qualifying students create their own artwork but may receive non-artistic accommodation and assistance from an adult. Students who qualify for the Special Artist Division may choose to enter in the traditional grade division. If this is the case, the student will follow all general rules and arts category rules, but may submit the entry in the grade division most closely aligned to their cognitive or functional abilities.
