Our Accountants for Arts & Apples program is one of Potter & Company’s annual events that we developed to support a local school and its art program.
Each year a few art classes are asked to design a holiday card. ALl the children design and create their cards and submit them tot heir teacher. A committee at our firm then judges and selects the winning entries. We then get to present scholarships to the winners and to the school at their annual arts assembly.
Each winning entry is then showcased on our Potter & Company Holiday card.
The arts are much more than just fun “extra” activities for kids. Participation in the arts opens up children’s worlds and minds, and offers them the skills they need for a bright future. And chances are, your kids are not getting enough art, in or out of school.
The arts do much more than allow kids to express themselves creatively:
- The arts teach kids to be more tolerant and open.
- The arts promote individuality, bolster self-confidence, and improve overall academic performance.
- The arts can help troubled youth, providing an alternative to delinquent behavior and truancy while providing an improved attitude towards school
