Reflections ART Program is Back!
This week is National Arts in Education Week! To celebrate, Mabry Elementary is participating in the Reflections Arts Program. Reflections is a PTA sponsored arts contest held at Mabry and judged by local community members. Students of all abilities K-5 have an opportunity to submit their own work of art based on their interpretation of this year's theme: Look Within
Student art can be in any of the following six categories: Visual Arts, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Dance Choreography, and Special Artist. Students have eight weeks from today to create their original works of art. All art must be submitted by Friday, November 1st.

Volunteer judges are needed to judge the student works of art. Judging will take place between 11/4 - 11/8. Some art will need to be judged in person (ex: visual arts), and some art can be judged online (ex: dance videos, music compositions, literature pieces). Anyone can be a judge! Art gallery owners, music school teachers, dance studio owners, High School students in art programs, parents, Mabry staff, etc.

Please contact with any questions about this program or if you are interested in volunteering or judging.
