There is definitely more going on behind the scenes with good art than I imagined. In all my years, I have not seen anyone, except for Myron, give you the insight on how these masterpieces are constructed. A very enlightening and important education for artists and art lovers.

Barnstone Design Method on Video
If you want to be a better designer or want to learn how to draw well, whatever your goals may be the content in the Barnstone Design Method videos will help you achieve them. The methods and principles taught are not readily available making this set an invaluable resource for the designer, artist and arts educators.
The Barnstone Digital packages follow the curriculum developed by Myron Barnstone to teach Drawing & Design. Mr. Barnstone’s Methods have proven to be successful over the past 30+ years in the amount of scholarship money awarded to students as well as the successful careers of a number of professional Artists, Architects, Educators & Designers.
Anyone wishing to purchase and study from the video sets is strongly encouraged to start with Drawing Lesson 1 and proceed through the material in order. Mr. Barnstone builds upon each previous lesson. The Figure Drawing and Color Videos would be best studied after all the Drawing material. Included are projects to reinforce all concepts and best practices with a critique of the assignments in the following videos.

Myron's DVDs are priceless with the amount of information and insight they provide. I have searched endlessly looking for information on design and the golden section with very little luck. Four years ago I stumbled upon his website and ordered the 5 disc DVD "introduction to drawing systems" and have been forever grateful. I have learned more in one year from Myron then I have in 30 years on my own. You won't be disappointed in any of these DVDs and online courses. They are all exceptional.
My experience with Barnstone Studios has been great. I have learned so much and have improved my art as well as my students art. I have a great process and procedure now that make my students successful at drawing. Any more helpful notes or examples or more videos would be great.
