Noyes began his artistic training with an apprenticeship at the Massachusetts Normal School. He then went to Paris to study under Courtois, Rixen and Le Blanc at the Academie Colorossi between 1891-1894. He held his first show in the United States in 1896 with fellow artists Maurice Pendergast, H. Burdick and S. L. Brackett. Shortly after 1900 he began teaching in Annisquam, Massachusetts and formed a local following. He held his first one-man show in 1906 at the Harfields Gallery in Boston.
