 About the Instructor:

William Noonan has a BFA from SUNY Purchase and has studied at the New York Academy of Art, the Art Students League in NYC, and the International School of Art in Umbria, Italy. After a career in graphics and publishing at the Village Voice in NYC, William returned full time to his first love: fine art. His work is exhibited locally, on Cape Cod, through internet venues, and is held in numerous private collections. An inclination for the figure and a deep love of Italian art inform his work and inspire him.
