3rd International Life Drawing Marathon 2018

Life Drawing Montmartre is returning this April with the third edition of Life Drawing Marathon, an intense four-day event dedicated to drawing the human body, with nude drawing sessions, tutored workshops, a life drawing contest, and a final exhibition.

Join us for a weekend of life drawing with the city’s most talented male and female life models and performers in one of the most picturesque settings in Paris. Over the two days artists taking part in the marathon will experience total of 12 hours of drawing with 10 of our best models. The weekend will culminate with a two-day exhibition of art created during the marathon.

Artists interested in participating in the marathon, please book your spot though our Meetup page. All November 2017 half marathon participants get a 20 % discount for this event.
