classical techniques for blocking-in the figure.
The focus of the block-in is to find proportion
and articulate the contour and major shadow
shapes. Noah will teach the use of plumb
lines, comparative measurement, and tilt angle to
find correct proportions.
Working from a live model, you will work on a new
drawing each session.
This is a good class to go with Noah's long pose
Drawing the human figure is a great
challenge. This class is all about working on
drawing better proportions. One of the ways we can
do this is by using measuring techniques to help
break down the figure and try to get similar
relationships in our drawings. By doing a new
drawing each week it also helps us develop a
foundation to build on and use as we work through
We are always problem solving while drawing, how
does the head fit with the arm? What is the tilt
of the leg compared to the torso? Are these the
same on my drawings as on the model?

"I have taken
portrait and figure drawing, and portrait
and still life oil painting classes with
Noah Layne. He is not only a master of his
art, but a great teacher as well. He
clearly explains the process to complete a
drawing or painting, and his demonstrations are
what I needed to tie his teaching to my
practice. Noah's comments on your
class practice is invaluable. I have
made great progress since taking his classes,
and plan to continue. He is a teacher that
anyone interested in improving his or her art
really should study from. Thanks Noah!"
