If you are interested in becoming an art model, the first thing you should practice and like is to stand still. It isn’t so important for photographers in the other modeling disciplines, but trust us, for art models this is a must!

An example of a typical drawing session is the following: Most of the time, first you will be starting with about 10 “one-minute” poses. These are considered warm-ups often referred to as “gestures”. After that, the serious begins, you will be doing difficult and most probably interesting poses such as; reaching, contortions and twisting etc. and you will be needing to stay in those positions for quite a moment, they can be between 2 minutes and go up to 30 minutes long.
