Arts in Education - Reflections
PTA believes all children deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in its annual Reflections program, which offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition in six areas: dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.
Thank you to all the students who took the time to share "What Is Your Story?" for this year's PTA Reflections program! PISD represented very well with seventeen students placing at the State level. Four PISD students advanced to National level, and results will be posted in early June. Congratulations and best wishes!
For anyone wanting to get a head start on next year's PTA Reflections program, the 2017-2018 theme is "Within Reach." Happy Creating!
We are so proud of all of our students who entered the Reflections Competition! We have so many talented students at Wyatt. Twenty-five students entered and these 10 students will be going on to the district level competition! Great job everyone!
Reflections is presented by the National PTA through our Texas PTA chapters, as an opportunity for our Wyatt Elementary artists to receive recognition for their original works of art. Students may enter more than once in a single category, or in multiple categories, with an entry form for each submission. Entry form and Guidelines for each style area are available at http://www.txpta.org/programs/reflections/participate/ . The theme for this school year is "What is Your Story?".
Students are encouraged to submit their original works in six areas:
- Musical Composition
- Two Dimensional Visual Art

- Film / Video
