Enter Here to Draw and Watercolor

A concise way to learn drawing and watercolor in a short, independent, self-paced course. 

Designed for you to explore drawing and watercolor on your own schedule, at your own pace. 


Enter Here... is an absolute basics program in drawing and watercolor to get you started with graphite and watercolor pencils, and to prepare you for more in-depth study and practice.

Enter Here... introduces you to watercolor with watercolor pencils, a natural bridge from drawing to watercolor. This gives you the opportunity to learn color fundamentals and experience the watercolor medium with minimal investment in watercolor supplies. (Yes, you use a brush and water.)
