In the atelier, we are fortunate enough to have a full-time model coordinator who meticulously screens and hires models, then recommends them for our program. While this is mostly advice for potential/current models, it is good information for artists, model coordinators, and monitors to bear in mind when hiring/working with models.
One of the greatest pleasures of the atelier is working from life models. Five mornings a week, for four full years, we draw insipration from the human form. How many artists are able to have such a luxury? Not many... and we are well aware of it.
