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.

Allowed me to fill in the blanks that where missing from my education

The [videos] introduced me to old and new theories, and concepts. The courses allowed me to fill in the blanks that were missing from my education. If you apply the work and time your drawing skills will improve. The [videos] are easy to understand. I only wish there was feedback in the courses. Thank you for the knowledge and time spent on these videos.

Thank you, Myron!

Very briefly studied at Barnstone Studios in the early 1980's. Myron was the first art teacher I had who actually taught art in a serious manner. I've worked as a professional illustrator/fine artist ( ) for the past 30 years and still use what I learned from drawing those bottles. Thank you, Myron Barnstone.

Using Barnstone Methods in Schools

I am an art teacher. I use the course not only for my professional development but also will be purchasing some of the recommended texts for our school library. My hope is to create interdisciplinary art/ math projects.
