I went to Chicago last year and that was enough for me. Yes, it was
nice to see all those interested art teachers, some of them even looked
like me! But because my district funding didn't come through til late, all
of the workshops I was interested were full and had been full for months.I
don't enjoy crowds and sitting in the cramped spaces was not fun .Walking
around Chicago after leaving there twenty years or so ago was pretty
interesting. Here's what I'd like--some way of acessing the people and the
subjects after the fact, a resource list with addresses of people willing
to keep on sharing their interests and materials. When I read what's going
on in some of the sessions, I sure would like to be able to contact some of
those people who are working in the same areas I am. Maybe if all those
folks would check in with this list......Peggy
