GHS Has 12 Entries in Citywide PTSA ‘Reflections’ Arts Program

Below are the works that have been selected to represent Garfield High School in the 2023 PTSA Reflections Art Program. This year’s theme: I am hopeful because.

Congratulations to all our artists and photographers, with special thanks to Mr. Louviere and Ms. West for facilitating this year’s entry process.

Works submitted at Garfield were judged by a panel of art and photography professionals, and assigned a score, with points given for Interpretation of Theme, Creativity, and Technical Skill. The top  twelve scoring works have now been submitted to the Seattle Council PTSA, where they will compete with works from other Seattle high schools. City-level results should be available after winter break, with potential for competition at statewide and national levels. Stay tuned!

The Reflections program was founded by Mary Lou Anderson in 1969 and provides students an opportunity for recognition and access to the arts which boosts student confidence and success in the arts and in life. You can learn more about the program here:

Garfield PTSA would like to expand our Reflections program to include entries from a fuller range of categories next fall. Feeling inspired? You can start thinking now! The chosen theme for 2024-25 is: Accepting Imperfection
