We’re so excited to announce our new series of professional development workshops… WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL!! Drawing on the talents and expertise of various professionals, The Art Room wants to positively contribute to the development of emerging artists by offering this series of workshops.
The next workshop in this series is BOOKKEEPING FOR ARTISTS with artist Sue Beyer!
Save money. DIY so you can spend more on art materials!!!**
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.
