To further enhance your learning experience, purchase the accompanying workbook: Introduction to Drawing & Design
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.
This video set is also available for purchase on barnstonestudios.com.
My videos are selling all over the world. This series is one of the best and most complete drawing and design courses available anywhere..
Therefore, this set of video lectures, classes and assignments represent a self-standing comprehensive university level art education.
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.

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 (www.SeanDelonas.com) for the past 30 years and still use what I learned from drawing those bottles. Thank you, Myron Barnstone.
Using Barnstone Methods in Schools
Posted by Kathleen Swope on 26th Feb 2015
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.
