art modeling

Does anyone have experience modeling for art classes and artists. I was at my life drawing class, when the model didn't show. One of the other artists suggested that we take turns modeling. Intrigued at the thought, a couple of us volunteered. Alas, it didn't go as well as we thought. Without any experience, we gave lousy poses and there was also the issue of embarrassing reactions with a couple of the males. Are there classes or resources on how to model. I think I would like to do it to supplement my income, as there are so many venues here who need male models.

When I took art classes, we, the students, took turns modeling as needed. Of course this was in high school so no nudity was involved as would almost certainly be the case for more advanced study.

I don't know about the "lousy poses" issue. To me it seems like the model just needs to be passive and have the endurance to hold a pose, not make or dream up a good pose. The pose itself must be up to the instructor to dictate, the model strikes the pose, the instructor corrects as needed, then the model needs the strength and patience to hold it.

So I would say that if you are interested, start asking around for where to volunteer or even sign up to be paid to do it. Call local art schools and also local private art teachers and I'm sure you'll find opportunities. I could be wrong or uninformed on this point, but I never heard of classes on how to model.

What reactions are you talking about? Are you talking about erections? I modelled for a couple of semesters and NEVER had that particular reaction. Seems a little odd ... even though erections are "normal."

You're in a better position to find out than us. Visit the various colleges in your area to find out.

As for poses, you could take a Tai Chi or ballet class to learn different postures. It's really up to you. You've taken life-drawing (or are taking it) so you could draw upon your experience in the class to come up with poses.

Sorta off topic but I had some friends who took a figure drawing class and had a model who was a transexual. Female bits above the waist but all male down below. People were definitely hiding behind their easels that day.
