Be the Next Mona Lisa!

The role of an artist’s model has been indispensable for centuries. Without models, there would be no “Venus de Milo,” “Mona Lisa” by Da Vinci, “Olympia” by Manet, or “Blue Nude” by Matisse. The need for artist’s models is ongoing and urgent. AVA is currently seeking models for life drawing, painting and sculpting classes. Would you like to be an integral part of someone’s art education? We would love to hear from you!If you are interested in modeling for art classes at AVA (clothed or nude), please email info@avagallery.org.
