Our Accountants for Arts & Apples program is one of Potter & Company’s annual events that we developed to showcase children’s artwork from regional schools.
Each year our firm invites hundreds of school children to participate in a free-form art contest. A committee then judges and selects the winning entries and awards scholarships to the winning schools.
Each winning entry is then showcased on special Holiday cards.
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
