Have you ever had questions about what it’s like to pose without clothes, but never knew anyone you could ask? Or just couldn’t find the courage to ask? I’ve had quite a few friends who’ve wanted to know what it is like to model nude for art, or just wanted to clear up some confusion about what goes into art modeling.
So, I’ve decided to write a post on it, in the hopes of answering some questions and creating some amusement in the process. So with that, I present Ask an Art Model:
The Nu Project | Nude Photography by Minneapolis Photographer Matt Blum
The Nu Project is a series of honest nudes of women from all over the world. The project began in 2005 and has stayed true to the original vision: no professional models, minimal makeup and no glamour. The focus of the project has been and continues to be the subjects and their personalities, spaces, insecurities and quirks.

In environments that women trust as safe places for nudity, those who participate find being naked just as pleasurable as men do.

But the variety of such zones of safety is gradually expanding to include, for example, private homes, health spas, yoga studios, dance and theatrical performance spaces, and art classes. (The sphere of activities with an overt sexual emphasis is a separate matter, but the extent of women’s participation is probably no less now than it’s been in recent times – and participants are increasingly less bashful in talking and writing about it.)

Embracing Nakedness: Adopting God’s View of Bare Anatomy | Seedbed
Preaching theologically-correct body acceptance can bring a reformation in Christian thinking that restores the strong incarnational message our modern world needs to hear. Although it means swallowing our pride, even the last step is possible: restitution. If our porno-prudery has played a role in the development of a society riddled with porn addiction, body-image dysfunctions, gender confusion issues, human-trafficking, and more, we must confess our error, ask forgiveness, and start behaving as if the “fearfully and wonderfully made” naked human body never stopped being “very good” (Gen 1:31).
