A workshop to learn what it takes to become a professional artists model.

To make sure I know exactly who is attending the workshop please make sure you pay the $25 in advance via PayPal to [masked] 

I have many requests every week for people wanting to figure model for my classes yet it is difficult to hire inexperienced or untried models. This is a 2 hour workshop with instruction on poses and practicalities setting boundaries and models rights etc. Professional full time model Maro Bizarro who works for many professional artists and art colleges throughout Chicago will be giving valuable and practical advice. Lisa Carter will give the artists view on what makes a good model and talk about opportunities and networking. She will also let the attendants actually try out their modeling skills in a drawing class held after the workshop at 3:30 in which other professional artists who hire models personally and for various art schools will be attending. Whether Figure Modeling is something you would like to do professionally or something you've just always wanted to try this will be in a relaxed atmosphere and should be enjoyable. All ages over 18yrs are welcome.
Champagne, soft drinks and light refreshments will be provided. Fee is $25

    Thanks for organizing this. Even though I have modeled extensively, I still found the session informative. Please keep me in mind for future drawing sessions.

    Thanks again.

    I regret to inform you folks that I will be unable to make Saturday's session. Something imperative came up at the last minute and I have to drive to Wauconda that afternoon. I already paid but can I take a rain check? I'd really like to hear and see more about what it takes to be an art model. Thanks

    I was invited to a figure drawing group after I told one of the organizers that artist modeling is on my bucket list. I've drawn at three of their sessions and want to learn more about posing before I model for them. Thank you so much for getting together this workshop.
