Join us as we host Elaine Grogan Luttrull for The Business of Art: Financial Literacy & Career Planning for Artists on March 14 & 15.  In this multi-day workshop participants will discuss common challenges faced by visual, performing and literary artists.

Elaine will lead discussions and activities to empower creative entrepreneurs and freelancers to follow their passions and build sustainable careers.  Topics covered will include goal setting and the art of budgeting for projects both personal and professional.  She will also share the best ways to manage irregular cash flow, including how to determine the “right” amount of cash to have on hand.  Tax and healthcare questions common to creative entrepreneurs will be covered on Day 2.

Elaine is the author of Arts & Numbers: A Financial Guide for Artists, Writers, Performers, and Other Members of the Creative Class.  She’s also a CPA and founder of Minerva Financial Arts, a company devoted to bridging the gap between business and the arts.  She is head of the Business & Entrepreneurship Department at CCAD, and her presentations have been featured nationally by Americans for the Arts, the Foundation Center, and the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the Kennedy Center.
