Hire us

Art Model Collective is available for hire for corporate or private life drawing classes, team building exercises or custom events.

Art Model Collective is a completely self-sufficient model-run group, founded in London in May 2016 by Carla and Manko, professional artists’ models who have over fifteen years experience of modelling between them. While most sessions will feature this visually captivating duo, we also have access to a large and varied pool of models, should the situation require it.

Whether they are posing as classical nudes or in one of our many striking themed sessions, they work together beautifully, bouncing off each other to offer stunning and dynamic poses, created especially to get your creative juices flowing.

We have organised over 70 original themed sessions so far!

While Art Model Collective holds regular events at The Underdog Gallery, Orbital Comics, and LimeWharf Studios, we also often bring one-off sessions to shops, art galleries, museums, festivals, offices and private homes.

  We also regularly hold tutored sessions – should you require a guiding hand – or pose to live music, models and musicians performing together in an eerily symbiotic partnership.

  If you’re an artist or a curator, we can theme a session to compliment your exhibition. It’s a great way to increase exposure and social media engagement for your event! Art Model Collective have successfully collaborated this way with artists like Chris Guest, DnA Factory, Codeture, etc.

Wherever we are working and whatever the circumstances you require, Art Model Collective will create high impact sessions in a fun, laid back yet highly professional manner.

  Life drawing is a wonderful activity for anyone interested in exploring their creativity and having a vivid and vibrant life experience. It is accessible to everyone, whatever their background. Whether you are a regular or a lapsed artist, whether you have never drawn anything in your life or whether you have ghosts from art classes at school that need laying to rest, Art Model Collective will ensure you come away with a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Feel free to get in touch if you wish to HIRE US to help bring your creativity to life!
