    Where are you in Kentucky? What grade level are you certified for? Income
    varies - but have you checked with private schools - several in larger
    cities have full-time art positions. Arts Associations may offer positions,
    art teacher for home schoolers (this would involved some work to get
    yourself started - but there is a market.). ESS programs offered through the
    schools (this would mean after school hours or Saturdays - you may have to
    sell it to districts yourself - but it could be done). There are many
    districts in the state supporting and even emphasizing the arts (a result of
    KERA) -
    It would help to know what part of the state you are in - different areas
    offer different possibilities.
    Not every teacher travels to several schools (which is how I started - on a
    cart, 4 schools and a three week rotation for seeing kids - not three weeks
    straight - once every three weeks, with classes of 30 - 40.) Even if that
    was your situation - after 20 years I still can recall individuals and
    classes - you will get to know them.
