I think you can teach and still be an artist, BUT, I agree with the
folks that say that at some point something has to have top priority.
It might also be age-mine is old. I find that after a day of school,
and this is with high school kids, I am genuinely tired, it is a real
energy expenditure working with the students, being really present with
them. Then like others, I have teenagers at home, cats, dog, partner,
and house to cooperatively clean, plus bookkeeping work I do for a coop
gallery I am involved with. But I am betting you are young and that you
will be able to be all those things since you are starting so well.
BEST OF LUCK TO YOU, I appreciate your enthusiasm.
