This class will serve to introduce people interested in becoming a figure model for art classes. The theoretical component of the class will cover the history of figure modelling, proper stage procedures, general punctuality, communications with studios and the booking / networking procedures required to be an art figure model. The practical component of the class will provide the opportunity for students to try timed practice poses that stress creativity and variation within one's physical limits (Gym Clothes Required).
This workshop is not currently scheduled. Please check back for future dates.
