Virtual life drawing class is looking to pay someone £250 to model nudeJuly 31, 2020
Love being in the buff?
A craft company is looking to recruit a model who loves nothing more than chilling in the nude, for its virtual life drawing class.
Crafting community LoveCrafts – which is behind the event – is offering £250 for a model to pose naked on Zoom, for 150 attendees to sketch.
It’s particularly encouraging applications from ‘fat, non-binary and disabled models,’ who have been underrepresented in the industry over the years.
Applicants must be comfortable being nude in front of an audience and able to hold still poses for up to 15 minutes at a time – they also must have a strong internet connection.
Drawing tutor Brogan Bertie of Experimental Practice will lead the live crafting session, which is set to take place on 27 August at 8pm for approximately one hour.
If you’re more interested in participating than posing, the session is free to join and has 150 spaces – but those wanting to take part will need to register interest beforehand.
For those less artistically-blessed, host Brogan will guide attendees through different life drawing techniques as they sketch or craft their own interpretation of the model.
Brogan said: ‘This crafty life drawing session will be a fun and relaxing hour where we reference our model’s poses to create whatever we want.
‘We can draw, use embroidery, collage, anything you feel like. Experimentation is encouraged. You don’t have to have done life drawing before; beginners are incredibly welcome.’
Milly Youngs, digital content manager at LoveCrafts added: ‘We wanted to hire a member of the public for our life crafting event as it’s such a unique opportunity for someone to experience.
‘Plus, there’s the added bonus of earning some money from the comfort of your own home.’
In other artsy news, a surreal sound installation is taking place at Berlin’s Berghain – which means you could finally get in after all these years.
Anyone looking to apply to be a nude model for LoveCrafts so can do via the website.
