32nd District Reflections Showcase 2016


District PTA Reflections Showcase

Saturday February 6, 2016 • 11am-1 pm

Walnut Creek Intermediate School

2425 Walnut Blvd, Walnut Creek 94596

    Please join us as we celebrate the artistic talents of our students in the Thirty-Second District! Students entries were very competitive this year as our judges, all professional in their categories, had a very tough time selecting ones to advance from District PTA to California State PTA. This year's judges include a published novelist, a Los Angeles music producer, a Hollywood film editor, dance studio director and artists and teachers. All were very impressed by our students' works.
    Our 2016 showcase will be a different format than in the past where we will have a gallery style walk-through. You are welcome to come with your students at any time during 11am-1 pm. Entrants moving to the California State PTA level will be highlighted as well as all of those entries who have been honored at the District level. Congratulations to our talented artists!

New Changes to Visual Arts Category!

Exciting new changes are coming to Reflections in the Visual Arts category! Starting this fall, 3D artwork will be accepted. 3D Art will include ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, fiber arts, etc. Now students can express their creations in media other than paper. Also, 2D Art will no longer have a thickness restriction. This means that students may use traditional canvas on wood and not worry about having their artwork disqualified if it's over 3/8" in thickness. There are conditions that students must follow, however, so please review all rules carefully. The General Rules and the specific rules for each category are available below. 

General & Category Rules 2015-2016

Please use Summary of Rules as a "cheat sheet." Once the student has determined the categories to enter, he/she MUST review carefully the General Rules and Full Rules for each category. Deadline dates will be determined by each school.

- Summary of Rules

- General Participations Rules

- Special Artist

- Film Production
