86: Mixed media, Watercolor and Taking the Road Less Traveled with Tina Hotchkiss 

Mike talks about Inktober as well as other monthly challenges and shares some of his recent work. Tina Hotchkiss then joins the show to talk about her journey from a child who found creativity to help with her dyslexia to art teacher. She talks about how industrial design led to her current role as artist and teacher from kids to seniors. Her homework will give you the tools to bring you art to a new level.
