I participate in several professional and educational listservs, but Artsednet is the one listserv where the most people participate, the most people actually try to understand what you are saying, and the most people have something worthwhile to say.
Maybe safety in the classroom, working with clay, how to manage over 100 kids in a day - everyday...etc is not important to you, but it is critical for the survival of some teachers. I think these mundane issues are really very critical, possibly even more critical than the highly aesthetic issues. The listserv members also talk about many "high art" issues.
The Artsednet listserv members talk about performance assessment, children with multiple physical and mental special needs, and other relevant educational issues. At the drop of a hat, any one of them will help you learn more about something you need to know about.... to be a better teacher or artist.
Give yourself some time. Remember there is always the Art Digest or the Archives.
