Call for Life Drawing models

Fine Arts students at Whanganui UCOL need models for their Life Drawing classes.
Life Drawing is a key component in the Bachelor of Fine Arts programme but lecturer Rita Dibert says it is often difficult to find people available to pose for the students.

The Quay School of the Arts has put out a call for volunteers who will be paid $22 an hour for their time.

“We are looking for women, aged 30 and over, who would feel comfortable modeling, unclothed, for a life drawing class. We also need more male models – we currently have only two on our list.

“We have no females on the list because our previous models have left Whanganui or are unable to model for other reasons, “says Rita.

She says there is a need for models for classes held throughout this semester for Bachelor of Fine Arts, Fashion and Graphic Design classes.

Rita says models do not need previous experience and can come in all shapes and sizes. “Often the best models have had yoga, dance or theatre experience, but not necessarily.”

Willing and available potential models should contact Jenny Jones at the Quay School of the Arts on 965 3801 extension 62435.
