As an artist, you probably think of your career as more of a calling than a business. Passion, not money, drives what you do, so you’d just as soon not have to deal with such financial matters as income projections and tax records. In order to have a commitment to your creative career, you must also commit to being financially stable. The Financial Considerations for Artists course leads artists through the planning of their personal and business budgets. It also discusses the benefits of bank accounts and covers basic bookkeeping and accounting methods for art businesses.
