Austin Workshop – Your Personal Path to Success: Budgeting and Planning for Artists


Your Personal Path to Success:

Budgeting and Planning for Artists

Presented in partnership with Dougherty Arts Center


As an artist, managing your finances may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, giving thought to budgeting and financial planning, both as an individual and artistic business, can have a big impact on career success.

Get organized and prepare for the future. Join TALA as we discuss:

  • Personal household budgeting
  • Budgeting for your artistic practice and paying yourself
  • How to prove income for a loan or mortgage
  • Small business and personal loans
  • Savings and retirement options
  • Insurance tips
