New Model Training


for New, Prospective New, Thinking-About-It--even Experienced--figure models

Sunday, December 2, 1:00 PM SHARP

Artists wishing to draw from a variety of life models are invited and encouraged to attend--free of charge!

Format as follows:

- 45 minute narrative, 15 minute Q & A

- 20-30 minute demonstration of modeling by a professional model emphasis on short, and so-called "gesture" poses

- then, prospective models try modeling, if they wish and as they're ready (nude advisable, but not required--see below)

- poses get critiqued by others present

If you're looking to become a Life (Figure) Model, come along!  If you've thought about it but you're not sure, this is the way to go!*  See what it's about, and give it a try if you wish--or not.  No pressure, no commitment!

*If you try it by getting a job at a school, then you HAVE to go through with it--cold feet are no excuse!

IMPORTANT!  New models who wish to have their names added to the Figure Models directory (distributed to colleges and art schools) MUST:

--Arrive by 1:00 and stay until 4:00; and

--Model successfully.

THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT TO MODEL NUDE, although if you choose to model clothed, you can be listed in the directory only as a clothed model.  To be listed as a nude model, you must model nude.  (Jobs are available for clothed and portrait models; far more are available for nude models.)
