All orders for Barnstone Method course downloads and On Demand video will continue without interruption, as will one-on-one skype and zoom sessions with Barnstone Master Guides. We will also continue to interact with students studying the Barnstone method classes on our Facebook pages, “Barnstone Studios Impaling Wall” and “Barnstone Studios Impaling Wall for Color.” Anyone paying for an order after March 23, 2020 will have their material removed from inventory and packed, and it will be shipped as soon as restrictions are lifted. This includes original Barnstone artwork and prints; Barnstone Method course DVDs; Barnstone Exhibit catalogues; Myron’s Anatomy Sketchbook; the Barnstone Art Heritage poster; calipers, and Perrier bottles. We are unable to put a hold on any artwork, or art supplies, without receiving payment.

For the 35 years he taught “the demanding intellectual rigor of art,” the late Myron Barnstone trained his thousands of students in the skills, craft and techniques taught in classical Renaissance ateliers. The fact that many alumni of Barnstone Studios in Coplay, Pennsylvania have gone on to distinguished careers in art-related fields is a testament to Barnstone’s effectiveness.

It wasn’t until after Barnstone’s death in 2016 that his daughter, Catherine ‘Cat’ Barnstone Szafran, opened the crates of his own work that he had kept hidden for 50 years. Despite his early success as a master painter, Barnstone made the decision to stop creating, and start teaching the fundamental disciplines that were being abandoned by contemporary art schools.

Under Szafran’s direction, the new Barnstone Studios in Thurmont, Maryland continues Myron’s legacy through the Barnstone Art Education Project, and exhibiting and selling original and limited edition prints of his work.
