Arts in Education
Arts in Education is a long-standing priority for PTA, and working to incorporate the arts into daily learning contributes to growth and education of the whole child. Visit Allen ISD Council of PTAs or Texas PTA for more information on Arts in Education programs.
PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate and explore the arts based on the 2019-2020 theme: Heroes Around Me.
ArtSparks is an art appreciation/visual literacy program designed by the Allen Arts Alliance. The program brings trained volunteers into local classrooms, giving the children the opportunity to interact with and explore great works of art, participate in an engaging discussion, and reinforce concepts with related enrichment/hands-on activities. The program is free to AISD schools.
The Allen Arts Festival is organized by the Allen Arts Alliance in cooperation with Watters Creek. Proceeds from the festival are distributed back to the ArtSparks/ArtsReach program and to other non-profit arts organizations under their umbrella. The date for the 2019 Allen Arts Festival is TBD.
