Strike A Pose: Become a Fine Arts Model

October 9 @ 11:30 am



Oct. 9 – Did you know that there are opportunities in the Boulder-Denver Metro Area to work as an Artist’s Model? Artists regularly employ models of all body colors, genders, ages, shapes and sizes for portraits and for nude, draped, costumed & clothed figure modeling. This workshop is an introduction to Fine Arts Modeling.

Presenter, Ellen Allen, a Boulder artist and Founder of Art of Modeling, will cover terminology, types of modeling, what kind of venues and artists to expect, types of poses, sets & props, how to prepare beforehand, what to bring, etiquette for models & artists, pro tips and more. Also included will be a mini modeling demonstration by a seasoned professional figure model, the opportunity to try clothed posing out for yourself, and time for questions. Take home supplementary handouts and a free gift for your future model bag. Upon completion you will be well-informed and prepared to begin fine arts modeling.

Pre-Registration is required. You are welcome to bring a bag lunch. Snacks will be provided.
