Intro Drawing Class by Globally Respected Teacher Has Been A Stepping Stone to Professional Art Careers for Thousands for Four Decades

Nothing in art is any more arbitrary than that which you would find in metric poetry or metric music, or any other intellectual form. Everything has a beginning, a middle, an end. It has purpose.”
— Myron Barnstone

THURMONT, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, September 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For students missing their art classes, or people with extra time on their hands now who always wanted to learn to draw, Barnstone Studios is stepping up. The Thurmont, Maryland-based art studio and gallery is offering the Barnstone Studios Drawing Systems 1 class download, a $49 value, for free. Just enter the code STAYsafeDRAW at checkout. The other eight classes in the series are 25% off when you enter the code STAYsafeDRAW425 at checkout.

The recorded classes are taught by the late Myron Barnstone, recognized as a leader in bringing classical drawing and design back into mainstream art education. Barnstone himself was a celebrated painter in the 60s and 70s, with highly-lauded exhibits in Paris. He honed his skills at Oxford University’s prestigious Ruskin School of Art. Barnstone grew frustrated, however, that contemporary art schools stopped teaching the disciplines studied by master artists for centuries, like anatomy and the geometric precision of The Golden Section. Instead, instructors were urging students to do “what felt good.”

Barnstone locked away 500 of his paintings and drawings, and burned hundreds more, to keep from influencing his students’ developing artistic vision.

During the 35 years he ran Barnstone Studios in its original location in Coplay, Pennsylvania, thousands learned the skills and techniques that launched them into distinguished careers as artists, professors, authors, animators, architects, graphic designers and other art-related professionals.

“Nothing in art,” Barnstone frequently reminded his students, “is any more arbitrary than that which you would find in metric poetry or metric music, or any other intellectual form. Everything has a structure. Everything has a beginning, a middle, an end. It has purpose, and it falls in a tradition.”
