Unique life drawing events – held by models

Life model initiative

Art Model Collective is a model-run life drawing group in London, reclaiming the power of the artist’s model through creating our own events and enjoying taking control of our artistic direction.

During the lockdown of 2020 we sadly had to put our live events on hold, but we are still very much active on our social media, sharing life drawing events held by colleagues worldwide (please scroll to the bottom of this page to see our current projects and follow us!)


Join the revolution!

With themes ranging from modern and classic art, comics, film, music to fashion and literature, we aim to spread the musehood to our followers – from absolute beginners to accomplished professionals.

To treat established professionals with the respect they deserve, to mentor and nurture new talent and create a healthier happier working environment. this professional model-run initiative has been raising the standards of life modelling since 2016.
