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.

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.

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 ( www.SeanDelonas.com ) for the past 30 years and still use what I learned from drawing those bottles. Thank you, Myron Barnstone.
I loved everything I watched. Myron is fantastic!
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.
