Arts Focus: Two Workshops Help You Master the Art of Managing Your Finances

This column is written and sponsored by Arlington Arts / Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development.

For the past couple of years you may have noticed exhibits of fine art enlivening the lobby of Arlington Community Federal Credit Union (ACFCU) curated via connections made through Arlington Arts.

Now, the credit union is bringing their financial expertise to share with artists — and anyone else in the community — through a pair of free financial workshops at Arlington Cultural Affairs!

  • Staying On Track: Money Management 101 — June 14 (6:30-8:30 p.m.)
    Who knew you were spending $50 a week on lattes? Identify your spending triggers and create a plan to curb spending, create healthy savings habits, and use automated tools to help you stay on budget.
  • Credit Basics You Need To Know — June 20 (2-4 p.m.)
    Whether you are buying a home or renting a car, access to credit has become increasingly important. Knowing what your credit report contains and understanding of how credit scores are calculated will put you in the best financing position.

The workshops are presented by the Arts Enterprise Institute, a program of Arlington Arts, in partnership with the Arlington Community Federal Credit Union (ACFCU).

Please use the Cultural Affairs entrance on the south side of the building. Parking is limited at Arlington Cultural Affairs, 3700 S. Four Mile Run Drive. Additional parking may be found in Shirlington Village, a 10 minute walk from Cultural Affairs. For more information, visit http://villageatshirlington.com/parking.

While the workshops are Free, space is limited and registration is strongly suggested. Registration closes at 5:00 p.m. on the evening prior to each respective workshop.
