Reflections Art Program

The Reflections Program is a National PTA and Washington State PTA cultural arts competition with the purpose to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works. 

Young artists get involved through their local PTA. A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas- music composition, literature, photography, visual arts, film/video, and choreography/dance. Only original works of art are accepted. 

Learn more on the Reflections page. 

Art Docent Program

The Art Docent Program at Brookside is beloved by both students and teachers. It encourages art discussions and activities that are a springboard for creative exploration for the students. It provides an extra resource, for the teachers, by establishing legitimacy of arts as a critical part of the basic curriculum.

The students expand their ability to form definitions of their visual world, as well as being introduced to a variety of artists, past and present, from around the world. The students use varied medias as a means of expression, from ceramics to India ink.  By having children examine elements of art, they can apply those to their own creative endeavors with greater understanding. 

The Docents, a volunteer who acts as a guide, get a unique opportunity in the classroom to be meaningful facilitators. They guide, challenge, suggest, and prompt students within the subject of art, which is not only fun for the students but enriching and inspiring for the Docents as well.
