Life Drawing Workshops and Classes

RAM affiliated life art workshops and classes

Life art workshops and classes are said to be RAM affiliated if they use only RAM members or models auditioning to join, and pay the RAM members at least the RAM rate (currently £12.50 per hour).  Affiliated groups are not obliged to audition people in order to recommend them for membership of RAM, but this service is very useful.  ('Erotic' art groups cannot audition models for membership).  Payment of auditioning models is discretionary.  If you qualify for affiliation, email us with details of your sessions and we will put them on this page.
