Student comments

"I have taken a Portrait Drawing class and a Long Pose Figure Drawing class with Noah. Noah is patient and caring and provides ample individual attention to each student. His classes are an asset to anyone interested in representational art no matter what their skill level. He provides excellent studio conditions with a well lit model and a supportive environment. These classes are an invaluable opportunity to do long poses from life with knowledgeable instruction."
