Whatever your goals may be, the content in this course will help you achieve them. The methods and principles taught convey essential, underlying techniques that are not readily available in most art education programs or classes today, making this course an invaluable resource for designers, experienced or aspiring artists and arts educators.

In the Introduction to Drawing Systems course, the student begins with a family of three bottles, learning how to assess the particular proportions and shape characteristics of their subjects. Like observing the proportional differences between people, the careful examination of bottles reveals a subtle anatomy of simple geometric shapes that creates the unity and variety for a harmonic structure, animating the entire composition. Delving much deeper in the complexities of form, students will learn to organize the three-dimensional volumes and surfaces, illuminate and render form in light and shadow, and organize their subject using the ancient geometric principles of the Golden Section.

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.
