Gwendolyn Stine Scholarship

“Point to point relationships…infinite possibilities. With a firm understanding of Dynamic Symmetry and my use of the Golden Section, gleaned from my studies with Myron at his much lauded Barnstone Studios, this Science/Math of design forms the foundation of my art; bringing me a solid expression of my understanding of creation. Everything is related. Nothing is arbitrary.”

— Gwendolyn Stine
1960 – 2020

Barnstone Studios is honored to announce the Gwendolyn Stine Scholarship, open to serious students interested in investing at least five hours a week in taking their artistic skills to the next level, and learning to draw very well.

Gwendolyn was already an artist who had concentrated on Fine Art in college before she began studying with Myron Barnstone at Barnstone Studios in Coplay, Pennsylvania. The Barnstone Method skills she learned took her art to a completely new level, and earned her national acclaim and numerous awards. Her original pieces are held in private and permanent collections across North America.

As a Barnstone Master Guide, Gwendolyn was one of an elite group of distinguished Barnstone Studios alumni doing one-on-one mentoring sessions with students studying the Barnstone Method recorded classes.

The Gwendolyn Stine Scholarship awards winners will receive the complete 9-part Barnstone Method Video Series, six months of Barnstone Master Guide instruction, calipers, and a plaster Perrier bottle, a key element of learning dynamic symmetry and design.

The scholarship is open to everyone, from beginners to established artists, and will be awarded every June and December.  The winner of the 2020 Winter Gwendolyn Stine Scholarship will be announced December 21.  Applications for the 2021 Summer scholarship will be accepted through midnight June 11.  Winners will be announced June 21, Gwendolyn’s birthday.

The Gwendolyn Stine Scholarship is made possible through the ongoing support of the Barnstone Studios Patreon Community and the following generous donors: Dita Daub, Joe & Emily Vincent, Dr. Yolanda Roth Moyer, Marjorie Buckley, Dr. Tracy Culbertson, Leslie Nordness, Renee Barnstone, Malakai King, Michael Mentler, Thomas Futyna, Susan Roehm, Stacie Spencer, Nancie Liles, Connie Olson, Jonna Rae Bartges, Sherri L.
