My Experience With Myron Barnstone
Artists and photographers that want to continue their studies after going through this website will find it beneficial to invest in the Barnstone Studios series of DVDs and Instant Downloads. I've been watching these videos religiously for the past 10 years and continue to watch them daily. To say they are filled with an endless amount of valuable information on art and design would be an understatement.
In 2009, I was fortunate enough to have spent three days with Myron in his studio in Coplay, Pennsylvania. We talked about art and design, and he showed me how to analyze photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson using the basic armature of the rectangle and overlapping root 4 Dynamic Symmetry rectangles. I was also able to shadow a few of his classes on the golden section. It was the most exciting and productive experience I've ever spent with an art instructor.
Unfortunately, on October 29, 2016, Myron Barnstone passed away. Looking back at the time I spent with him in his studio and studying his DVD lessons on art and design, I realized how much his teachings had made an impact on my life. The art world has lost a great teacher, a mentor, and a real artist.
