3-hour Custom Virtual Modeling Appointment

For artists needing a their own ‘intensive’ – a custom session with time to work directly with a male life model for practice or creation of drawings/paintings emphasizing particular pose types, compositions, and/or anatomical areas they may not have found available during scheduled group sessions. When booking, please be sure to answer the questionnaire (see PDF in “Extras” tab) and get the responses to Avid with enough time to prepare your appointment or get clarification from you. Please keep the request realistic in terms of time and physical capabilities.  We can work with your preference to the extent feasible, for example how much time to spend on short versus longer poses. 


Three-hour appointments require a few rest breaks of around 5 minutes, or sometimes more depending on the physical demands of the requested pose(s).  There are many ways to use a longer appointment like this; here are just two examples showing schedules that are usually feasible (you can provide additional scheduling preferences with your questionnaire answers):


- 10-minute interview/collaborative discussion on artist’s specific goals and setup

- 6x 2-minute gesture poses for artist/model warm-up, and test/tweak tech setup

- 1x 10-minute short pose

- >> short break/check-in discussion, ~5 minutes

- 10-minute pose tailored to artist’s request/direction

- 20-minute pose tailored to artist’s request/direction

- >> short break/check-in discussion, ~5 minutes

- 20-minute pose tailored to artist’s request/direction

- 20-minute pose tailored to artist’s request/direction

- >> short break/check-in discussion, ~5 minutes

- 50-minute pose tailored to artist’s request/direction, with break mid-way

OR:

- 10-minute interview/collaborative discussion on artist’s specific goals and setup

- 6x 2-minute gesture poses for artist/model warm-up, and test/tweak tech setup

- 10-minute setup and beginning of long pose
