Supporting our community of artists around the world by providing them with resources to help them grow - wherever they are, whenever they want. Members have access to a growing figurative video library featuring bodies of all types to reference as they practice and learn.
Get inspired to explore your craft alongside other figurative artists, just as artists have done for hundreds of years, now with a modern virtual platform.
We use Zoom for all of our virtual sessions.
We work with models around the world and are always increasing our outreach to include more models in our community. We work only with professional models who work part or full time as a figure model for artists. All models are paid for their services, but they also appreciate tips!
Click on the session you’d like to join in the Session Calendar. Then click ‘Register’ on the session details page. You will be sent an email with a link to join the session and further emails about any updates to the session details or the Zoom link. You can always go back to the session details page on the site and click ‘Join Session’ at the top, which will take you immediately to the Zoom meeting.
Our members have the ability to save images from the library by clicking the (book icon) Bookmark icon underneath each video. This will save the timestamp of the video to your profile page. To return to the image, just click the corresponding bookmark on your profile.
For our model’s privacy, no images or videos from the site can leave the site without the model’s strict consent. This means absolutely no imagery from the video library can be shown off-site.
During virtual sessions, models have the option to allow screenshots. This information will be in the session details and a tip of $5 or more is generally required. Always read the session details to find out the expectations from that session.
The models are in charge of their sessions. They Dj, moderate, time poses, move cameras and chat with members. It’s a lot of stuff to do, so please listen to updates and follow directions while you are in session. Writing suggestions in the Zoom chat feature is a great way to communicate with the model about any updates.
We’re all here to make some art, so here are some codes of conduct to help it run smoothly.
1. Keep your camera on during breaks and while the model is talking.
2. Mute your mic while the model is posing.
3. Only take screenshots if the model allows and always tip their requested amount.
4. Share your work and tag S&S and the model!
