4th International Life Drawing Marathon 2019

Life Drawing Montmartre is returning this April with the fourth edition of Life Drawing Marathon, an intense five-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 three-day exhibition of art created during the marathon.
