Allentown Morning Call
The Golden Section is art’s greatest mystery. Often referenced but rarely understood, it was the closely guarded secret that gave birth to everything from clandestine societies like the Masons to the painting guilds that dominated the Renaissance.
The purpose of this illustrated lecture is to provide art students with an overview of the drawing devices, conventions, and the systems employed by master artists to construct drawings of the human figure. To quote Edgar Degas: “A picture is something which requires as much knavery, trickery and deceit as the perpetration of a crime.” An artist does not draw what he sees, but what he must make others see: this course will provide discussion and analysis of master drawings, and explain why it is that a master draughtsman must never copy what he sees.
From drawing & design to color theory, discussion of the Golden Section to detailed coverage of figure drawing, this is the collection that includes it all! If you want to be a better designer, learn how to draw well, enhance your photographic, sculpting, or other artistic endeavors, the content included in the Barnstone Method videos will unlock new skills, techniques and insights. This is an ideal collection for the beginner, experienced professional, and arts educator.
