TAP to offer professional and business workshops

Elaine Grogan Luttrull founded Minerva Financial Arts in 2009. She works to build financial literacy in creative individuals and organizations through education and coaching.


The Tuscarawas Arts Partnership received a grant award from the Ohio Arts Council to help fund its newest program, the ArtsThrive Program. The ArtsThrive Program is a series of professional and business workshops geared toward artists and arts organizations and businesses that want to take their artistic endeavors to the next level.

The goal of the ArtsThrive Program is to provide resources and tools for artists to help their art career or business.

TAP will conduct the first set of workshops with curriculum in coordination with consultant Elaine Grogan Luttrull, author of “Arts and Numbers.” The second set of workshops will be based on the artists’ choices or suggestions on topics they want to cover.

The program will be held at My Museum Tattoo Studio’s auditorium and gymnasium space, 935 Tuscarawas Ave. NW, New Philadelphia.

The first three workshops will cover the following topics: Budgeting - Five Steps to Building an Exceptional Budget, Saturday, Sept. 7; Protecting Yourself - Contracts, Entity Types, Insurance and More, Saturday, Oct. 5; and Taxes 101 - The Basics of Income and Sales Tax for Creative Individuals, Saturday, Nov. 2.

The second set of workshops will be determined based on artists suggestions but will be held on the following dates: Saturday, March 7; Saturday, April 4; and Saturday, May 2.

The ArtsThrive Program will offer in-depth information that will help creative individuals and organizations and businesses take a look at their business with new knowledge in topics such as budgeting, creating contracts, and understanding insurance and taxes.

With access to these free educational workshops, the goal is that Tuscarawas County artists and arts organizations will find this information helpful as they strive to thrive in their artistic careers.

The first workshop covering budgeting will be held Saturday, Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to noon. Refreshments and course material will be offered at each workshop. To sign up for the free ArtsThrive Program workshops, visit Tuscarawas Arts Partnership’s website and learn more about the courses and guest speaker Luttrull at www.tuscarawasartspartnership.org/artsthrive.

Tuscarawas Arts Partnership’s ArtsThrive Program is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council. The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally and economically.
