Secrets of an Arts Administrator

“Secrets of an Arts Administrator” will be a weekly blog post featuring anecdote from regional administrators/educators in the creative field.  It is NCLAC’s hope that through these real life experiences artists in all fields can gain practical knowledge for the industry.  As the famous author C.S. Lewis once said “Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.” Last weeks post was about the importance of writing for artists and arts professionals and this weeks post is about an equally challenging life skill MATH.  I've attached some links to sites that may help the average artist with math skills required for daily interaction.
