I work as a professional figure model, meaning I pose naked sometimes with props in a room of people for 3 hours while they draw me from life. I mostly work undergraduate class sessions, but I also do private modeling for grad students working on their thesis and other special sessions, all in an academic setting. It's fulfilling work that I enjoy very much, but there's a lot of misconceptions, so I thought I'd answer some common questions. Hope ya'll find it interesting! Easily the most common question I'm asked, since I do a lot of work modeling with other people, most often boys. Fun fact: at my university I'm one of 3 regular female models, but we have so many males volunteer we have to turn most away.

We sat down to chat about getting into this particular modeling business and the nature of being scrutinized by the artistic eye. Chris: No, no.
The Art Institute of Tampa is seeking applications for part-time figure models. Models pose in the nude for the anatomy classes and in costume for the gesture drawing classes. Model drawing time is 3 hours per class.
