I haven't posted in awhile because I have been doing this ^.   Teaching drawing is very rewarding, but also very time consuming.  I did find time this weekend between bouts of grading to watch some of the talks from the Renwick Gallery's Symposium: Nation Building: Craft and Contemporary American Culture  http://americanart.si.edu/renwick/symposium/index.cfm that they had in conjunction with their show 40 under 40: Craft Futures.  I have really enjoyed what I've seen so far, it's given me a lot to think about.
