Reflections Program

The Reflections Arts Recognition Program is a national arts recognition and achievement program for students. Since 1969,
over 10 million students across the nation have taken part in this popular PTA program.

The excitement and enthusiasm that the program generates for students, parents, schools and communities is unmatched with
the majority of Georgia PTAs participating in the program at all PTA levels.

That’s why the Reflections Program provides an excellent opportunity for students of all ages to:

  • Unleash their creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the joy and fun 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

As an added bonus, in showcasing and celebrating student talent, the Reflections Program increases community awareness of
the importance of the arts in education.

The 2019-2020 Reflection’s program theme is “Look Within.” We are excited to see the unique interpretations of the theme from our IKES students!
