special invitation from Texas PTA

Fala Creative's Fatima Donaldson was invited by the Texas PTA to serve as an official state judge in the 2011 Reflections program for the visual arts and photography categories on January 27, 2011 in Austin, TX.

The National PTA Reflections program has the most participation of any PTA program, with Texas alone receiving over 100,000 entries from across the state. The program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit works of art in six areas: literature, musical composition, photography, the visual arts, dance choreography, and film/video. The PTA believes all children deserve a quality arts education and encourages students to pursue artistic expression through participation in its annual arts Reflections Program. In its more than 30-year history, the program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to create works of art that interprets a specific theme. This year’s theme is, “Together We Can.”
