John "Doc" Ward taught high school art for 30+ years, imparting not just lessons about art, painting, and sculpture, but lessons about never giving up, caring about the process, and not being afraid of failure.

When Mike decided to start this podcast, Doc was the first person he thought of wanting to have as a guest. Doc is constantly curious and full of stories about both art and life. 

This episode will be split between 2 parts since it's a little longer. Check back next Sunday for the second half!
