"I Matter Because..." 

Each year, the Reflections Program challenges students to create art that supports a specific theme. Themes are selected from thousands of ideas submitted by students to the National PTAs Reflections Program Theme Search. The theme for the 2020-2021 season is  "I Matter Because...".  

The Reflections Art Program has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families, and kids are at the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.
 
Reflections encourage students of all ages to:
 
  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy 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.
 
All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one or all of six areas:
 
  • Dance/choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film production
