Upon arrival, please check in with your ID, provide your contribution or your ticket receipt, and sign our Guest Registry.
Guests are invited to model during scheduled times. All guests are invited to get naked or stay clothed to their comfort level.
If you are interested in posing, sign up on our Posing Sheet, and we will schedule you to pose on a first-come, first served basis.
Guests are not allowed to touch the models for any reason.
Photographers: Some models are comfortable posing nude for various styles of art, others may not be comfortable posing nude for Photography. Each Model decides individually. Please respect that.
We desire to provide an environment where both the models and all types of artists can enjoy and benefit from this event. With that in mind, we are limiting photography in the main posing areas, and models will pose for photography in the photo-booth area at scheduled times.
Photographs are not allowed outside of the Photo-booth. Painting/Drawing artists may request a single reference photo, if the Model approves it.
In the Photo-Booth
Models have the option to be clothed or cover portions of their anatomy.
Please ask the model about taking specific photos (for example: close-ups) or for specific poses, and respect the model’s “No thank you”.
Please be aware of your path when moving around, and avoid visually blocking other artists during the posing times.
Staff room is for models and event staff only.
Models are paid a percentage of the ticket prices, however that amount is much less than a model would get paid if posing for an individual artist at an hourly rate. Please do tip the models at the end of their posing times, thank you.
PS: This event is open to all artists, including beginning and aspiring artists as well as those who have never even created art in the past but who would like to try it out!
Interested in being our featured model? Attend at least one Nude Art Night! as a guest, and let us know you’d like to be featured!
Come enjoy creating art!
We will be providing light refreshments, and will likely have some additional art supplies on hand to share, but please do also bring your own.
Tickets $30-35 advance registration, $40 at the door.
