Art Model Expert will be responsible for posing for art department classes at varying times to support the course curriculum throughout the academic semester. It would be typical for an art model to work for an entire class session, whether for approximately three hours or more per week. Most modeling is in the nude and involves a variety of poses sustained over varying periods of time. Skills required include the ability to hold poses requested by the instructor over specified periods of time (short gestural or action poses, longer poses for more detailed studies of the figure, etc.), patience, and discretion. Due to the physical nature of poses requested, models generally need to be agile and physically able to hold prolonged poses.
