    I misinterpreted....

    For an Art class, I would do it for the experience.

    If I had a great body and looks to match, it wouldn't take much. The way I am now, it would take a bundle.

    Ditto for me.

    If I wasn't busy doing anything else more profitable, I'd do it for $50-$100/hr... but I can't see why anyone would pay me $50/hr when there are plenty of people who do it for free.

    Going rate at most colleges for nude models for classes is between $10 and $20 an hour. Just for comparison. Almost never is a model paid on a "per picture" basis due to the nature of the work. It's a time thing.

    One million dollars. It is my standard answer for any monetary question.

    Ha, good question, montroyal. Apparently most of the replies so far are from people who have neither modelled for an art class, nor taken an art class with a live model.

    The models are often very attractive, but not always. The teacher wants the students to get experience with a variety of ages, shapes, and sizes... so us old fat guys have a chance, too.

    As for how much, it would have to be a lot. Art class modelling is a hard job, harder than most people realize. You most often are posed in a not-too-comfy position, and have to be very very still throughout the class. Some of the resulting artwork may be sexy, but the posing is definitely NOT. It's most often rather painful, in fact.

    I haven't done art class, but have done other stuff for art's sake and for nothing.

    I've already done it. Great experience, also paid $75 per 45 minute session, 2 a week for 12 weeks, and that was several years ago.

    HangX, do you agree with my assessment that it is much harder to do than most people realize?

    Those lucky art students!:wink:


    As for me? I would never do it, nor would I consider doing it. I am much too self-conscious, shy, and uncomfortable with being nude.

    I think $50 would be nice, but I've already posed for a drawing, a painting, and photos, for a couple art student friends for free. A couple of the pix in my former gallery were from one of those same people.

    I did it several times during college as a favor to friends who were art students. No problem although it was interesting, on one occasion, to go to an exhibit of students' work and stand around talking with people I knew with a pastel drawing of me right there. I wasn't embarrassed, it was just kind of different.

    Not sure if that was directed at me... but the point I was trying to make was not so much that art classes only take attractive people... but that I would be more willing to model (i.e. exhibitionistic) for less if I was more attractive.

    As I am now, I'd require cash to get past my selfconsciousness.

    I did it 4 times in college when my dad didn't send me money. I was paid per class. At first it was awkward but then I liked it. The instructor asked me out. He was like 50 I guess.

    PS I loved some of the finished products. It's amazing how other people interpret you or focus on when looking at you.

    I was an art major in undergraduate. For our life drawing classes, they used models of all shapes and sizes. I am not sure what they were paid.

    I assumed this thread was about magazine shoots-which generally do not pay much more than $300-500 for the shoot (and your travel and hotel--and some don't even pay that).
