SCALA™ Models Academy has been training SL models to a professional level, since January of 2014.
It’s been quite a ride!
We always start our course with models trainees we don’t know, some we’ve never met before. And at the end, when they graduate, there is this bitter sweet feeling of letting go.
Because of the way SCALA Modeling Course and Curriculum is structured, both Instructors and Trainees bond.
And we never forget each other.
Here are four more SCALA™ Models Academy Graduates. They speak for themselves.
My experience training at SCALA Models Academy was in many ways totally surprising and overwhelming. As it turns out there is much more to modeling in SL than I could have possibly imagined. Not only that but much of the details in theory can be applied to fashion in real life as well.
Although at times getting all the details of homework assignment right seemed to be overwhelming there were still two wonderfully mitigating factors, First, the people – the knowledgeable, kind and patient instructors, and also my genuinely helpful fellow students and a few experienced friends who cooperated freely and generously with my efforts, if no other way than just to provide a critical extra set of eyes when i thought I might be finished with an assignment. Thank you all. Without all of you this would not have been possible. Second, there is my sense of accomplishment and satisfaction with having struggled, overcome, and succeeded. Nothing worthwhile is ever too easy it seems.
I don’t know if I will continue to work as a model after the graduation, but at least I know that I could and that I might become very good at it eventually, because of the strong foundation of my Scala experience. Thank you again.
My experience training at SCALA Models Academy was a journey and a half indeed . Partially because of changes in both worlds. I learned a lot about myself and had some fabulous tutors that i will always hold dear. You become very close to your fellow students, they are after all, your future colleagues. The subject areas are broad and help you to identify weaknesses and strengths it can get pretty intense. However, you emerge no longer a generic robot model but one with new skill sets and a personality !
I heard a lot of good things about SCALA and was excited to be able to attend. I was not disappointed. I was not totally new to modeling and I learned a lot, and had to unlearn somethings too!
The first classes were great – Psychology for Success. It gave a realistic perspective of what can and does happen and allowed us to get to know each other better – all in all a great foundation to start on.
Styling and Shaping classes were also very informative – totally enjoyed both, I do wish we’d had more time with both Wicca & Ruby on these topics though. But both the styling and shaping is something I plan to continue to work with on my own.
Blogging and promoting class, also very informative – Linda had a wealth of information to share.
Loved pose management class with Sea – was fun, interesting and I learned and unlearned a lot. Kryptonia’s runway classes I will admit gave me the most anxiety – on the spot choreo in confusing runways (the doors and stairs one in particular). I kept bearing in mind, “If I can do this, I should be able to do any!”
All in all, I found SCALA a good place to be. Instructors who were friendly, patient, and available when needed. I found I was comfortable enough to just try. If I made a mistake, it was okay. I always felt encouraged, not discouraged. I definitely would recommend SCALA and have.
My experience training as SCALA Models Academy was an enjoyable learning experience. I not only learned a lot about fashion but also my perception and how to step away from my comfort zone. Very enlightening.
I would recommend SCALA to other models starting out because the knowledge you gain is more thorough then what I have seen from other schools. That being said, there is always room for improvement and one thing I heard was “show us who you are” but when that came to be, I was told it was not correct. Also “have fun” when working hard to pass the course in the end, is anything but. Would I do it again? Yes. Thank you to all of the Staff at SCALA for making me the model I am today.
We wish you all good luck to all in your future endeavours!
