    Interesting and thoughtful post. As a former art model a lot of what you wrote resonated with me. As an artist newly returned to life drawing you reminded me of why I need to get back into it as part of my practice. So thanks!

    I used to model for art students and would love to get back into it in my new city. To add some thoughts to this post: the hardest pose I ever had was two hours with one foot on a ladder. This was when I had just started, and I had no concept of how awful it would be to have most of my weight on one leg for 2+ hours! Learned that lesson real quick!

    Overall modelling for art classes is the job where I’ve been treated the best…checked in with, made to feel as comfortable as possible, given a lot of choices…I feel like when you’re not wearing clothes any kind of exploitation or carelessness would seem particularly egregious, so folks tend to be careful to really treat you like a human and value your labor. That being said, self-advocacy is super important no matter what! Thanks for this post! It’s a good reminder to check out these gigs in my area!

    Back when I was in school I considered modeling for extra cash, but in the end I chickened out. I don’t regret not doing it, especially since my school was so small, but I would probably be more open to it now. It was really interesting to read the thoughts and tips of someone who does this professionally.

    Love all of your tips! I have learned most of these the hard way real quick. Lol Though, one thing I try not to do is give complete control of my body to the Art students. They don’t know what feels comfortable to the model. So being open to any of their requests is not always the best answer. You’ll end up in a pose that kills.
