Reflections Art Program

2022-2023 Co-Chairs: Yalan Xing and Yanna Gu 


The Reflections Program is a National PTA arts competition for students from pre-K through grade 12. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works of art in response to a theme.


2022-2023 Submission Deadline: Nov 28, 2022


The winners' artworks will be advanced to Bellevue Council level and have a chance to advance to state and national level. Medina made to state level finalists last year! This year is more exciting as the in-person art show is coming back: all submitted pieces will get displayed at the Book Fair Family Night & Reflections Art Show on December 7th at 5pm, and have a chance to be voted as “fan-favorite” piece!
