2017 Reflections art competition: Within Reach

 

 

Our best turn-out ever! Bryant Elementary students submitted sixty-five entries to Reflections, a national PTSA art competition. Recently, three local art professionals narrowed their selection to twelve entries to be sent along to the city-level competition. It was a very tough decision and our judges spent many hours studying all entries. Bryant’s twelve selections moving along to the city-level competition were notified last week! All sixty-five entries will be featured at Bryant’s Family Art Night later in the school year! 

All Reflections participants and patrons of the arts are invited to view the city-level finalists on display at the Seattle Center Armory (balcony). Art will be on display between December 1, 2017 and January 7, 2018. Bryant artists are features as part of 20 Seattle schools represented at this exhibit!

Thank you and your child for supporting the Arts at Bryant!

Questions: contact Beth Jacob-Files & Kelli Hessler.
