Reflections (PTA Art Program)

Congratulations to all our Lincoln Elementary PTA Reflections Program participants! 
We received so many creative art pieces it was definitely tough judging all the submissions. We were lucky and very thankful to have eight wonderful judges who volunteered their time to grade each submission.

Robyn Torres - Visual Arts
Alcine Iida - Visual Arts
Nancy Aoki - Visual Arts

Judging criteria 
All entries submitted were judged based on the work and the artist statement in three categories: Interpretation of Theme  (40 points), Creativity (30 points) and Technique (30 points). The artist statement and title were crucial to the Interpretation of Theme score.
