We are currently offering an integrated training session; the first part will be held virtually, the second part will be held

in the open air in an expansive park.

Two Part Training with Manual  $45

Did you know that there are opportunities in the Boulder Metro Area to work as an Artist’s Model? Artist groups and schools regularly employ models of all body colors, genders, ages, shapes and sizes for nude, draped, costumed & clothed figure modeling.  


This workshop is an introduction to the profession of Fine Arts Modeling.  Upon completion you will be well informed and prepared to take the next step into the artistic field of Fine Arts Modeling-getting real life experience doing it; whether becoming job booking AOM Model-Member or venturing out to model on your own!


Artist & Founder of Art of Modeling, Ellen Allen, a former fine arts model, will cover the ins & the outs the practice.  Topics covered will include basics like terminology, types of modeling, what kind of venues and artists to expect, types of poses and sets, types of props, how to prepare beforehand, what to bring, etiquette for models & artists, tips and more. You will hear various perspectives on the artistic profession from our panel of experienced art models, ask them all of your questions and you will also have the opportunity to observe a live art model in action and try it out for yourself.  You will take home an art model's reference manual, a model timer and chalk.
