Summer is always a really slow time for modeling, and this summer has seemed especially slow. I've modeled twice since April 21st, and one of those was for a brand new drawing group's first attempt at a session. I was scheduled to model last Tuesday night for a class at my local community arts center, but a few hours before the class was supposed to have started, I got a call saying that it had been cancelled due to a lack of registrations. I was disappointed, both because I didn't get to model and because the lack of interest in drawing the human figure seems to be increasing in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The same instructor will be trying another figure drawing class at that same arts center on September 24th, and I am, once again, the scheduled model. If the arts center won't promote the class enough to get the minimum number of people to sign up, perhaps I should put a post in the Artists' section on Craig's List or something.
