    Life Drawing - Getting started from scratch

    I managed to organize a life drawing session at the university, but the bigwigs found out, and although the session was a success, I was forewarned about the perils of initiative and avoidance of red tape. To avoid further finger waggings in my direction(or even worse, actual consequences) I am trying to do this legit.

    In attempt to get life drawing sessions/workshops/drop-ins established in my area and am asking for suggestions.

    I am attempting to go through the University bureaucracy at the present. However, should that predictably fail, I am also scouting for other locations.

    I have several questions for people that may be involved with this at various levels:
    Is it run through an organization? (University/private company/non-profit/informal)

    How are models obtained? (Advertising? Word of mouth?)

    How are models paid? (contract? hourly? gratuity?)

    If anyone has any words of wisdom on the inner workings of this kind of thing, I am all ears.

    I've encountered all of these within my rather small city.

    Word of mouth, mostly.

    Hourly for a class, hourly plus gratuity for open model sessions.
