Join Creative Practices Institute for the continuation of our professional development seminars under a new name, the Artistic Entrepreneur Program. This program provides hands-on learning that encourages artists to manage a professional art career. Our next PD seminar takes on the topic of Basic Bookkeeping. This is a two part seminar so feel free to register for one or both parts.

Are you interested in starting your own small business? Unsure of how to take your financials from personal to professional?

This intro to Bookkeeping for creatives comes in two parts, “Artists Bookkeeping Basics and Artists Bookkeeping Bootcamp”

Artists Bookkeeping Basics will give participants an elementary understanding of bookkeeping as it applies to artists and creative small business.

We will cover some financial vocabulary and accounting equations, acquainting you with general ledgers, adjusting accounts, and monthly bank reconciliations through a series of hands on activities. There will be plenty of time to discuss your personal questions and quires.

The second session will allow participants a chance apply the bookkeeping basics to your own creative practice. You will have a chance to work with your personal records with the assistance of the instructor and participant peers.
