New Classic Art Journal: How did you become aware of the concept of The Divine Proportion?

JA: After graduating high school, I attended a small college in Pennsylvania. While there I heard rumors about a passionate instructor living in the vicinity who was teaching something called the golden section. I was curious and had long suspected that there was something missing in my art education. When I went to visit Myron Barnstone at his studio in Coplay, Pennsylvania, I was mesmerized by his systematic approach to art. He had an authoritative command of the great traditions of art and the golden section was a key part of his teachings.”
