Reflections Program


Designed to enhance rather than replace a quality arts education, the Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves and to receive positive recognition for their artistic efforts.

The Theme for 2017 – 2018: “Within Reach.”

PTA believes all children deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in its annual arts Reflections Program. The program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition in six areas: Dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and the 2D/3D visual arts (which include art forms such as drawing, painting print making, and collage). For over 40 years, the program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to create works of art. Yearly Pennsylvania receives 17,000+ entries … several of them from McKean Elementary!!


Get Started! Reflect on the theme. Create an original work. Be recognized!

McKean Elementary is Region 1
