How to Become An Artist’s Model – Strength Magazine – January, 1926

The general conception of artists’ models seems to be that they are born, and not made. Therefore, it may surprise you a little to know that it is just as possible for you or anyone else to become a model from a course of training, for the purpose of entering the model profession, as it is possible for you or anyone else to become an accountant, stenographer, bookkeeper, etc, from courses studied for entering these professions. That is to say, you can be trained to become an artist’s model and have just as much chance (likely more) of becoming one as you will have of becoming an accountant, stenographer, etc.
