The 2013 theme is “Believe, Dream, Inspire.” Students are encouraged to create and submit works of art in eight areas: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, theater, photography, visual arts, and three dimensional art.
The purpose of the national Reflections program is to encourage children to experience and explore their artistic talents. Start your child’s creative juices flowing by asking them what things they do or see or imagine that relates to the theme. Help them narrow that idea down to a category that highlights their artistic talent, or to attempt a new artistic experience…something they have never tried before.
Pick up an entry form (you can print them off by clicking a link at the side of this page, or pick up a copy of the entry form at the front office), and print off specific rules for your project (click on the link at the side of this page for the category that your student is entering) to help you format or display the final product. Make sure to read and follow the rules carefully and note that the entry form and artwork release form must be signed by student and parent.
Every child who enters will be recognized for his or her attempt, and for the first time, this year we will be having an art show to display each entry for parents and the whole school to enjoy.
Start planning your artistic projects now; our school deadline is October 18th!
