If you attend art school or draw or paint in the capital, you may have seen one of the London life drawing models posing. But just how do you get to do that for a living? Firstly, most life drawing models work part time, largely to supplement their existing income. Despite what many people think, you don’t have to have a perfect physique, and all body types can find work, although you need to be reasonably fit. Being able to keep still, often up to 30 minutes is obviously important, and many life models are in demand during the evening. And of course, your personality should be such that you don’t mind being started intently at by a room full of strangers. This is definitely not for everyone, but as you’re getting paid just to sit there, it may be an option for extra money.
