The WLES PTA is proud to once again sponsor the annual Arts in Education Reflections Contest! If your child loves art of any kind – photography, painting, drawing, collage making (or any visual art), writing, dance, film making, music – please encourage them to develop a piece of original art to submit! This year’s theme is Believe, Dream, Inspire and all artwork should reflect this theme. Ask your children what they believe in, what inspires them or who they would like to inspire, or to illustrate their dreams in whatever art medium speaks to them.
Once they submit their original artwork, the children have an opportunity to be recognized for their work at our school and winning submissions from our school could be recognized on a state or even national level! Please note that this is not just a performance competition for all our singers, dancers, and musicians. The children must compose an original piece for their entry. We ask also that parents facilitate the art and encourage the artists, but not actually assist so that the work is absolutely a product of an amazing kid. Mark your calendars for the night of November 5th and plan to attend our Art Night, where students will have the opportunity to work on their art projects in the All Purpose Room here at the school.
They can bring their own supplies or use those provided. It will be a wonderful opportunity for the students to make something amazing to enter into the Reflections contest! Then on December 2nd at 6:30pm, all students who submit artwork – and their families – are invited to attend a reception in their honor at WLES. Keep an eye out for more information about both of these fun evenings in your children’s Friday Folders! If you have any questions or would like an entry form, please contact Heather Kiger at firstname.lastname@example.org . Submissions are due on November 15th
