Please note: The DVD available for purchase is of a special lecture at Barnstone Studios. It is designed as a follow-up to the Introduction to Drawing Systems and is not intended as stand alone instruction. The production is unscripted and unedited. The video quality reflects the nature of a live presentation.
The Golden Section is art’s greatest mystery. Often referenced but hardly understood, it was the closely guarded secret that gave birth to everything from clandestine societies like the Masons to the painting guilds that dominated the Renaissance.
Even more mysterious than its origins, are its inner workings. It is a tool that taught artists how to harness the power of the Golden Section in their own work. From Michelangelo to Picasso, great artists of the last millennium learned how the Golden Section could transform the power of their works from mere decorations to priceless treasures.
You will learn how it works, who has used it, and most importantly how to use it yourself. Over the last sixty years Myron has made it his life’s work to train people to see like artists and develop a commanding authority over the pieces they create. Whether you are an artist, a student, an architect, a designer or someone who just loves art, this program is designed to radically alter the way you see the art and leave you with a profound appreciation of the true artist.

Unlike so many "teach yourself" videos, I do not trivialize my material to avoid threatening the timid. Were the craft of drawing, painting, sculpture and design a simple-minded form of therapy, these subjects would not have attracted the life’s work of so many great minds. Nor, would the world’s museums be so richly filled with masterworks.
