£25.00 per session
Swindon College are looking for Life Models to pose for our enthusiastic Further and Higher education art students. Whether you have modelled before or are seeking a new experience, this is a great chance to get involved in our creative art department.
Drawing from the figure is a classic, traditional art skill and weekly classes are held for our students to learn and improve drawing techniques, whilst building their portfolios. This role requires you to pose unclothed in a range of standing/sitting positions for students to complete drawings.
All sessions are taught by a College Lecturer in closed private studios. Modelling experience is not essential but a mature and professional attitude and an ability to take direction for short and long poses is necessary.
We are seeking to appoint a varied range of models to enhance the student experience and welcome applications from people from all ages and walks of life.
Our classes take place on a Thursday morning, or Thursday evening, and are two hours long with between 5 and 18 students. We will of course ensure regular breaks so you are comfortable.
In this role you’ll:
• Pose unclothed in dynamic poses for our art students,
• Respond confidently to requests for different poses, and
• Have the ability to pose for a set duration in one stance standing or seated.
Closing date: 8th January 2020
