Reflections deadline 10/15

“I Matter Because…” That’s the theme for the 2020-21 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969, sponsored by PTA. 

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.

General rules are here https://capta.org/programs-events/reflections/general-rules/ Entries are due Oct. 15 to Wood Middle PTA.  We will receive all entries electronically this year.  Please email  with questions, and to receive an electronic entry form.
