The next workshop in our WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL series is BOOKKEEPING FOR ARTISTS!
In this introductory workshop we will be looking at how to keep better records for our small art business. It’s not as hard as you think! Learning the basics of Manger, a fantastic free program, we will look at keeping track of our receipts, how to create an invoice, spending and receiving money, export reports you can send to your accountant and prepare quarterly BAS information to help you complete your tax obligations easily. Finally we will look at applying for an ABN as a sole trader.
It’s on the 19th of August, places are limited, for all the details and book HERE.
Melbourne artist Elvis Richardson also runs Countess, a very important project examining gender equality in the arts. They’re crowdfunding to complete the next stage of their project and you can make a tax deductible donation at https://australianculturalfund.org.au/projects/countess/

Congratulations to our wonderful sponsor LANGRIDGE ARTIST COLOURS on their new website and upcoming exhibition CHROMATOPIA – a history of colour.
Welcome to Chromatopia, an exhibition on the history of colour.
Spanning thousands of of years, travel through the story of pigments and their incredible journeys from across the globe.
Tales of dragons & beetles, alchemy & poisons, slaves & pirates, from the ancient world to the present come alive in this exhibition on colour’s creation.
This voyage of discovery features pigments made from deadly metals, poisonous minerals, bodily waste, crushed insects and predatory sea snails. Colours dug simply from the ground beneath us, others so expensive that only kings and popes could afford them.
Within the exhibition, see the living process of historical colour manufacture in action.
Also featured is the new world of strange modern colours that only reveal themselves when touched, are invisible in sunlight or shine in the dark.
Opening 6:30pm on the 31st of May and on display from the 1st to the 18th of June 2017.
We’re looking forward to the next workshop in our WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL series! HOW TO PREPARE CANVASES AND BOARDS with artist Merryn Trevethan is on June 17th, places are limited, and all profits are being donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
Our first WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL WORKSHOP is this Saturday! Join us to learn how to use social media as an artist, and how to make it work for you. Places are limited, afternoon tea is included, book your place HERE.
