Abstract Painting

Since 1969 National PTA's Reflections program has provided students across the country with the opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which strengthens student confidence and success in the arts and in life.


Each year thousands of students fro Pre-K to 12th Grade participant in the program by producing original pieces of artwork to California State PTA through their Districts, Councils, and Units related to the year's selected theme.

         The 2021–2022 Reflections theme is “I Will Change the World By…”


Artworks are submitted first to the local unit, where they are first judged by five grade-level divisions, with a non-judged Special Artists division for student artists with special needs. Units then select entries to move forward to District PTA.

The District's final selections are submitted to California State PTA to be considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit. Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.


 All Unit entries are due to Eighteenth District PTA by December 1, 2021.
