“Show Your Voice” is the theme for the 2022-23 Reflections Art Program, which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. North Carolina PTA is proud to be apart of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

It offers these students opportunities to express themselves creatively in six different art categories and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme.

The National PTA Special Artist Division is an option for students with disabilities who receive services under IDEA or ADA: Section 504 to have the opportunity and accommodations they may need in order to participate fully in the program.
