I just got back from a weekend conference put on by the Art Educators of Nevada. It was held in Boulder City, a wonderful small town about a half hour drive from my house. It really felt like a vacation. Boulder City is so different from Las Vegas; it reminds me of small towns in Ohio, where I grew up. I spent the weekend with other art teachers from around the state. We made beautiful things, talked about how to advocate for the arts, and went on a walking tour to see the sculptures on display around the town. It was very difficult to choose what classes to take because they were all interesting.
When I got home, I found that my scarlet runner beans have started to bloom!
