West Creek Academy PTA is thrilled to participate in the National PTA Reflections Arts Program.

Look Within

Create an Original Work

Only new and original works inspired by the theme: Look Within will be accepted.

Enter in one or more of the following arts categories.

  • Dance Choreography
  • Film Production
  • Literature
  • Music Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts

View the general rules for the program here.

Submit Your Entry
We will need volunteers to help ensure that collection goes as quickly and smoothly as possible for all. If you are available to lend a hand, please let our Reflections Chair know by sending her a message via the website contact form (select 'Reflections' from the pull-down). Thank you!

Entries are due in the West Creek Academy Multi-Purpose room on Tuesday, October 15th between 7:45am and 10am. Your submission must include a completed and signed Student Entry Form, available here: Reflections 19-20 Student Packet.

In your artist statement, tell us about your work and what it means to you.

  • How does your work relate to the theme?
  • What is your personal connection to the theme?
  • What did you use to create your work (e.g. supplies, technology, instrumentation, props, etc.)?
  • What/Who was your inspiration?
Judging Criteria

Volunteer arts and education experts review submissions without knowledge of the entrants’ identity. Judges look for personal interpretations on the program theme that best exemplify creativity and technical skill.

  • Interpretation: How closely the piece relates to the theme, based on the artwork itself and the artist statement.
  • Creativity: How creative and original the piece is in its conception of the theme and its presentation.
  • Technique: The level of skill demonstrated in the basic principles/techniques of the arts area.
