Apply to be a Figure Model

VisArts regularly works with figure models to support our painting and drawing classes as well as our weekly open figure drawing sessions. Our instructors schedule models for their classes based on an in-house list.

We also welcome new figure models to apply to work with us. You can fill out the application below and a member of our education team will reach out if you look like a good match and schedule a phone interview.

Once you’ve been approved, we’ll add you to a model list that is shared only with our instructors. If you’re selected to model for a class, you’ll be asked to fill out some basic paperwork and a timesheet and submit this for payment. We hire figure models as 1099 contract employees and pay an hourly rate of $20 per hour; figure models are paid monthly.
