Art Class


Let's get started!

The Reflections Program allows our students to express themselves through their gifts & talents in the ARTS!!  Each year Maryland students participate in Reflections and produce amazing entries in all six Reflections arts areas.  We are so pleased you have chosen to run this program in your PTA/PTSA and wish your students the best of inspiration and dedication in producing this year’s winning entries.  Any questions can be emailed to the Free State PTA Reflections Chair.


This year’s theme is “I Will Change the World By…”



A word about the COVID 19 pandemic:  This year will test our capability to be flexible and patient.  Free State PTA, your Council PTA, and your local will all be striving to present opportunities to students.  For Reflections, we may need to get innovative about how we handle art.  We will be running the program completely electronically. More guidance will follow as we get to our deadlines, and as we heed any new guidance from the State of Maryland. So, for students and chairs, plan to make your art available electronically for judging and promoting to the next level of competition. May we all stay healthy and safe as we move through these challenging times. Free State PTA will make an electronic folder available for Councils, and locals without councils, to put their entries for consideration for state awards.


To begin, go to  to the National PTA Reflections website and click on the “Register” button.  After registering your PTA, look at the information provided through National PTA.  Please note that the National PTA information is general information, but none of the documents are customized for the Free State PTA Reflections program.  All information on the Free State PTA Reflections Program is available in the links below.


The Free State PTA 2021-2022 Reflections Handbook and appendices provide the information local leaders need to implement the Reflections program in a Maryland local.  This information is your guide to running a successful Reflections Program here in Maryland.  Please share this information with your local units and others interested in learning more about the Reflections Program.  Please also be in touch with your Council PTA as applicable.  Councils will give specific guidance on how the Reflections program is implemented in your county.
