Oil Portrait Painting Class



Sunday afternoons 1:30-4:30pm

  September 10th to December 3rd
No class Thanksgiving weekend Oct. 8th

Come learn techniques for painting the portrait. In this class there will be four, three week long poses. Noah will show you classical techniques for painting a realistic portrait. Noah will teach the use of plumb lines, comparative measurement, and tilt angle to find correct proportions. Noah will show how he mixes colours and talk about how he thinks about colour when painting. Working from live clothed models, you will learn how to start your painting, see and record shapes clearly and simply, and model form by carefully observing the properties of light.

You will work on four paintings over the twelve week class.

Student comments

"I have taken both portrait painting and drawing from Noah Layne and found him to be not only a brilliant artist but an exceptional teacher. He is both kind and patient but most importantly I have noticed an improvement in my skill level. I intend to take more classes from him."
