|Reflections at Kiker|
Relections is a national PTA-sponsored program offering students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students in preschool through grade 5 are encouraged to create and submit works of art (on a specified theme) in six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the visual arts (which includes art forms such as drawing, painting, print making, and collage). Students may submit as many entries in as many categories as they would like. For general program information, visit the Texas PTA Reflections webpage at www.txpta.org/programs/reflections.
Theme for 2012-2013
Primary: Preschool - Grade 2
Program Dates at Kiker
All students who participate in the program will be recognized by Kiker. Additionally, the top entries in each category (approx. 20%) will advance to compete at the Regional->State->National PTA levels. More information on the National PTA Awards and Recognition can be downloaded here. Entries are judged on artistic merit, creativity, mastery of the medium, and interpretation of the theme. Note that a well-developed concept carries more weight than than technique. Judging is primarily on how well the student uses his or her artistic vision to portray the theme.
