For artists, one of the best ways to study the lines of the human body is to draw it from life, with a model posing in front of them. It's a centuries-old tradition that was recently disrupted, when the coronavirus shut down art classes and live drawing sessions. But artists have been finding ways to adapt by moving online and outside. An Kent Van Dusseldorp keeps them busy by taking off his clothes.
Pose ideas for life models
How a Virtual Nude Figure Drawing Class Changed the Way I Think About Intimacy | Bon Appétit
A craft company is looking to recruit a model who loves nothing more than chilling in the nude, for its virtual life drawing class. 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. 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. Experimentation is encouraged.

We are always on the lookout for charismatic art models for life drawing and other artistic opportunities. We do not ask for modelling experience as we believe that a model should be themselves — able to hold an easy-going conversation with their audience and be confident when they pose nude. That said, some past experience is a plus.
