Hi all,

I've got a friend who's not a model but has wanted to be a life drawing model once - it's one of those bucket list things. It seemed like an interesting thing and since it's on her bucket list I thought I'd ask around...

Does anyone know who to contact or how she'd go about doing this?

She might like to find out if there's a local art college or art group and approach them in the first instance.

Local Education Authority may well run life-classes.

If it is something she only wants to do once, then it won't be worth approaching colleges or other institutions and having to fill in loads of forms.

I'd suggest trying to find a local art group which is run privately. Good places to look for these are art shops, libraries and of course, online. The other good way of finding a one-off sitting would be to ask an existing art model in her area.

I used to life model regularly, she could try 'artmod' or 'lifeart' or 'spiritedbodies' amongst others. Amanda

Spiritd Bodies would be a good organisation to contact. They run classes specifically for people to try out life modelling in a group, with a strong emphasis on positive body image and life modelling as a tool for wellness. Most of women who model through Spirited Bodies do so once, at the event, and don't continue to do so afterwards, but if she does want to continue life modelling after that first session, the women who run it will normally be happy to help you out. You don't get paid for it but it's an awesome experience.

If you PM me I'll send you the appropriate contact details.

I used to model for my local college, which then led to work from independant artists, so maybe worthwhile to check with colleges nearby offering art courses.

I did a shoot with a model the other week who said she also does life modelling and is a member of the Register of Artists Models (RAM). Never heard of it myself but probably worth a look if interested.
