    I am a life model for figure drawing. I live in northern Idaho, and I pose for several local studios and colleges: 1)North Idaho College offers figure drawing classes 2) Spokane Art Supply in Spokane, Wa. (Julie offers year round figure drawing classes) 3)Spokane Art School 4)Terry Lee Studio in Coeur d Alene, Idaho 5)Whitworth University in Spokane, Wa has figure drawing classes. 6)Spokane Falls Community College 7)Gonzaga University… and I’m sure there are more in this area that I haven’t worked for yet.
    I work with groups/classes, as well as individual artists. I have several professional references, and have a flexible schedule. Will travel throughout the inland northwest. Daron Brunke, porchbrunke@gmail.com

      Thanks for the information. You have been added. With so many sites listed, we can’t update when models are needed site by site, so we made a general comment that new models are welcome to apply. Cheers.
