Cabin John has many talented artists! Thanks to those who submitted a piece for the National PTA Arts Reflections program. This year we had 15 submissions, which was an increase in submissions over last year. Three entries per category can move forward to the next round of review at the county level with the Montgomery County Council PTA (MCCPTA). We had a third-party judge help review all submissions based on a nationally-standardized rubric that evaluates both technique and interpretation of theme. Cabin John has 11 entries moving forward to the next round in the visual arts, photography, composition and literature categories.
So that the entire community can see the scope of our talented artists we have created a virtual art show (please see attachment) highlight each entry. The art show also announces the eight Cabin John Middle School students who have a submission moving forward in one or two categories.
Congratulations to all of our artists and thank you for keeping Arts Reflections such a fun and rewarding part of our PTA programming. We will provide additional updates from Cabin John students through the county, state and national judging circles as they become available.
