About Barnstone Studios

Mission: Barnstone Studios is dedicated to fostering an appreciation of fine art, and helping to make art education accessible to all who desire to develop their skills, enrich their lives, and learn to draw very well.

Barnstone Studios LLC is nestled in the quaint Maryland town of Thurmont, roughly an hour outside of Baltimore, and two hours from the original studio location in Coplay, Pennsylvania.

Under the direction of Catherine ‘Cat’ Barnstone Szafran, Barnstone’s daughter, the studio showcases internationally-acclaimed original paintings and drawings by the late Myron Barnstone. It is the first time all of Barnstone existing work, which was hidden away for 50 years, is under one roof.

The studio also serves as the hub of the Barnstone Art Education program, which continues Myron’s life-long work of offering students a strong foundation in the basics of classical art with videos Barnstone recorded in his classes, and live instruction by Barnstone alumni and Master Guides.

Additional information about Barnstone Method classes, private coaching from Barnstone Master Guides, original works or limited edition prints and other related products is available by calling Szafran at 301.788.6241.
