Explore The Arts, And Express Yourself!

All Louise Archer students are encouraged to participate in the LAES PTA Reflections Arts Contest. Remember: we are all artists!

The 2022 theme, Show your voice…, calls for your own unique interpretation through the arts. This year, we are following the format that was used last year with digital submissions and online entry forms.

See a video explaining the program.

Guidelines for each category can be found on our website. Please note that the physical guidelines no longer apply, as all projects must be digitally submitted, so Visual Arts entries must be photographed for entry. The online student submission forms will be available soon. For inspiration, visit the Reflections virtual art gallery and learn more about prizes and scholarships. We will celebrate all Louise Archer entries and participants in a special reception in November.

Full details are available on the LAES PTA Reflections website
