Basic Finance for Artists

I got an email yesterday from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council with information on a free six week workshop on basic finance for artists. I can't find anything on their website, but here's the pertinent info taken directly from the email:

BFA: Basic Finance for Artists

Designed especially for artists, Basic Finance for Artists is a concentrated, six-week series of workshops that will help develop financial awareness and balance through practical training in money management.

Workshop Topics will include:

* Budgeting
* Accounting & Tax
* Debt Management
* Investment & Market Basics
* Buying vs. Renting
* Long-term Planning


LMCC is looking for a diverse range of artists who are committed to and will benefit from hands-on training in an open learning environment. The workshop series is free, but space is limited and registration is required.

I don't live in the city but I have lots of artist friends that do. I should direct them to do your blog because they could use some advice in these areas. I know having the information but be just the insurance they need to continue to pursue their passion but in a prudent manner. Good management skills and discipline leads to wealth.
