The VLA works with estate planning attorneys familiar with the unique challenges representing an artist’s estate and dedicated to assisting artists to develop a legacy plan. It’s never too early or too late to think seriously about your legacy and to take steps that will make a difference!

The Workbook for Visual Artists introduces visual artists to a variety of important estate planning issues and provides tools for artists to have meaningful discussions with loved ones, with an estate planning attorney, and with others who may participate in implementing an estate plan.

The legal content of these workbooks was created by Megan Low, Legacy Consultant, and Jim Grace.
