Drawing Life has been supporting the growing number of life models working in the city, introducing at least 1 new model monthly at our First Thursday events.
We often get asked how to become a life model, and we try to give everyone who is interested in pursuing it a chance to experience it in a friendly and safe atmosphere with the help of our tutors and models to support those starting out. At this model training workshop, we will work closely with you and a small group of new models. Any of our first time models are welcome to come and join us for free to hone in on their poses and will be able to share their experience of working with us with you.
The session will be a social and friendly event that is designed to give everyone an insight into what it is like to be a model, health and safety and how to contact art classes to become a model with them, run by Drawing Life and an experienced model.
The first part of the workshop (6:30-8) is clothed and we will spend a 90mins with you demonstrating poses, playing games which help us interact with our bodies and seeing how we can all build our own style of modelling from the same instructions. After a break, we will give everyone who wants to continue a chance to model (8:20-9:30). With advice and encouragement throughout. This part of the session is-nude and we will NOT be taking photos. Anyone unsure if they would like to do the second nude part is welcome to leave during the break!
The workshop will cost £15 or £10 for students.
