Model Office and Prop Room

Whether you’re an artist, illustrator, designer, photographer or filmmaker, ArtCenter’s Model Office and Prop Room help bring the images and ideas of our visual artists to life.

The Model Office schedules art models to pose for classes throughout the year. In addition to your studio classes, the Model Office works with ArtCenter’s Integrated Studies Department to arrange open studio drawing and painting workshops available to any student who wants to practice and exercise their skills. An art model and instructor is provided with seating on a first-come, first-served basis several days of the week, every term.

The Model Office is also a great resource for students needing information, guidance or referrals to acquire art models locally.

The Prop Room at Hillside Campus (P1) is a treasure trove of furniture, period pieces, background sets, décor and wardrobe, which students may check out to add depth and dimension to creative projects across all disciplines. Items are constantly in rotation with new items added regularly to our eclectic collection.

The Prop Room at South Campus (P2) runs exclusively to service onsite classroom needs in the 1111 building.
