PTA Reflections – Believe, Dream Inspire

Van Buren PTA presents:                                                        

The 2013-2014

Reflections Art Program

“Believe, Dream, Inspire”

What is the Reflections program all about?

The PTA Reflections program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students.  It provides our students an opportunity to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for their original works of art inspired by the theme; “Believe, Dream, Inspire”, while increasing the importance of the arts in education. 

Six Arts Areas are:

  • Musical composition
  • Photography
  • Visual arts
  • Dance Choreography
  • Film Production
  • Literature

To participate in the Reflections program:

1)    Think about what the theme “Believe, Dream, Inspire” means to you.

2)    Create an original work in one of the six art areas; Musical Composition, Photography, Visual Arts, Dance Choreography, Film Production or Literature, following the general participation rules, as well as rules for each arts category listed above.

3)    Submit your completed artwork in the Reflections 2013 bin in the front office.

4)    Come see your art at the school art show and be recognized.

It’s THAT easy!
