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.

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.

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.
