Wayyyyy back in August or beginning or September I saw an advertisement in a Nevada Museum of Art brochure advertising a Life Modeling Class with models in historical costumes. I thought this would be an interesting fun gig to do, so I called and volunteered to model. The teacher was out of the country but they would take my name, number and pass it on to him. Time passed, I forgot I had volunteered, then a phone call came from Jerry Stinson, teacher of the class. He called me at the end of October or beginning November, asked me questions regarding my costumes and I shared my enthusiasm for costuming. Actually I was a chatty Cathy.
He came out the next day, looked at my wardrobe room and we talked about a schedule. I shared with him pictures of other costumers and their ensembles and then before I knew it I was volunteering to set a schedule for him of various models from different time frames, genders, body types. What I thought would be a fun interesting gig has turned into so much more than a lark. The intensity of the students concentration in the class room is almost tangible. Out of my association with Jerry, his students and the work they do has grown a tremendous amount of respect for their hard work. The first class session was six weeks, we are now on a four week class session.
Below some of the pictures I have listed the artist web site or email. Take a look at their wonderful work.
