For the 35 years he taught “the demanding intellectual rigor of art,” the late Myron Barnstone trained thousands of students in his art classes 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 art classes where students would learn 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.
