Last week I shared how excited I was to team up with Partners Trust to lend our support at P.S. Arts’ biggest event of the year, Express Yourself. This year’s event was phenomenal and it was fun to see all of the kids and the creative celebrities at Express Yourself 2013!
The Partners Trust booth was all about getting creative with Duck Tape, and it was a huge hit!
P.S. ARTS is a non-profit organization that partners with public schools to provide art, theater, and music education. Their mission is to bring art education to children in under-served public schools and communities.We were able to hang out with some of our favorite celebrities, like Modern Family’s Julie Bowen, Joel McHale from Community, and Parks and Recreation’s Adam Scott.

Duck Tape donated more than 900 rolls of their patterned tape to the event, and children and families got to make all sorts of fun projects like wallets, tablet covers, hair bows and engage their imaginations for original creations.
Lisa Kudrow, the amazing chairperson behind this event summed up the importance of the arts and creativity: “The arts aren’t just a fun pastime. The arts are real brain work. Too many people think they can shove arts education aside in favor of math and science, but you have to keep all of it going to encourage creativity. That’s how you get innovation, advances and products you’ve never seen before.”
We couldn’t agree more!
