Financial Matters

Since January, Mondays at the Learning Zone have been all about the moolah. Bones, clams, dough, cash; whatever you call it, it’s money, and that’s what Money Mondays are all about!

Love it or hate it, we all need money to live (barring some extreme cases!). Money management and financial planning are especially important when you don’t rely on a steady income — a situation sadly familiar to many artists. There’s no time like the present to learn about money because the longer you wait, the more of a mess you can get yourself into.

At this point, we’re already seven steps into the ten-step program, but don’t let that get in your way! You can still register for the last two sessions:

1 April — Step 8: Protect Yourself and Your Money
8 April — Steps 9 & 10: Get Help & Stay Financially Fit

For more information, visit the Financial Matters: Info Sessions page on the OCADU website.

Actually, it’d be a good idea to check out that web page anyway because Start Your Professional Practice Now! 2013 is coming up at the end of the month. With two days of presentations from artists, designers, and educators — like Budgeting for Artists & Designers (so you can catch up on what you missed at Money Mondays!), and Alumni Panel: From Classroom to Career — this is a great opportunity to learn from those who’ve been there. So take a well-earned break from studying, and study up on your future!
