This workshop will teach you the skills necessary to pose for artists and students of art in a variety of contexts. You will learn to develop your range of expression, to make judicious choices for sustaining poses, and strategies to avoid pain. We also discuss the professional context of artist-model collaboration, of the particularities of the drawing studio, and of nudity in the context of artistic creation.
This workshop takes place within a drawing studio. Participants are encouraged to wear loose, comfortable clothing as we will be moving within the space.
The workshop is designed for people interested in posing for the first time and for models with some experience to improve their abilities. There will be ample opportunity for questions throughout the workshop.
