Event description

Description

This workshop provides a crash course in financial literacy for artists. Designed and led by Amy Smith, a working artist with expertise in bookkeeping, budgeting, tax preparation, and financial management. This workshop will raise participants’ level of financial literacy regardless of their prior experience. Topics will include individual taxes for artists, segregating personal and artistic finances, budgeting for your life and your artistic projects, tips for tracking deductible expenses (what can artists write off?), and how artists can get out of debt and start saving.

Open to all MICA Students, Faculty, Staff & Alumni
