We tend to think that our creativity is something uniquely human... Ai-Da Robot, a humanoid robot artist, creates art using cameras in her eyes, AI algorithms and a robotic arm. She has an artist website: https://www.ai-darobot.com/ and her self-portraits are currently on display in the Design Museum:
https://designmuseum.org/exhibitions/ai-da-portrait-of-the-robot

Wondering if Ai Da would be interested in joining a life drawing session someday and how it would feel to pose for a robot:

A new group started by artist Laura Buxton, in her ground floor studio on the other side of Butte Montmartre, is quickly becoming our favourite atelier to draw from life in the Montmartre neighbourhood… except for the Untitled Factory of course :) A beautiful ancient studio and very inspiring! A relaxed atmosphere and great models, with slightly longer poses for those who want to work a bit more on their drawing.

If you are interested in learning more, just visit Laura’s meet up group:

Drawing faces without a reference photo? Marco Bucci explains how to do it! Here comes a sneak peek how the different planes of the face influence forms and values. Areas shown in yellow get the most reflected light, while the red areas are not exposed to reflected light at all. Check out the full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqvFjJTIJx8

06/05/2020

As you know, due to the nationwide lockdown, we have had to cancel all our life sessions and events during the last couple of weeks. There is the possibility that the measures will continue beyond mid-May and/or other restrictions on gatherings and travel will be put in place in the months to come. For that reason, we are now forced to take a break from running our life drawing sessions until autumn. We will issue refunds for all the remaining classes! For all the portrait contest and drawing marathon winners: We hope you can join our events in October / November, coronavirus permitting. To finish on a positive note, we are aiming to publishing more art-related content on our FB page in the upcoming months. We will start next week with our first video on the process of figure drawing. So stay tuned and stay safe.

Figure drawing in the City of Light

The Life Drawing Montmartre (LDM) initiative was founded in 2014 and offers life drawing workshops for both professional and amateur artists. The workshops are run at LDM’s atelier and gallery, located in one of Paris’ most charming and artistic neighbourhoods – Montmartre.

In addition to regular life drawing sessions and human anatomy classes, LDM organises life drawing events and exhibitions devoted to promoting figure drawing.

Paris’s International Life Drawing Marathon organised by us every year in April is the only art event of its kind in the French capital. The marathon is an intense four-day event dedicated to drawing the human body, with n**e drawing sessions, tutored workshops, a life drawing contest, and a final exhibition.

Bonjour, modèle vivant, j'aimerais effectuer des poses durant vos ateliers libres ; j'ai déjà fait plusieurs demandes. Pouvez-vous m'indiquer la marche à suivre pour vous rencontrer. Disponible, très motivé ; j'attends votre appel😃

Some drawings from today's session
Hi all I'm a live model in the "Ateliers des Beaux-Arts de la ville de Paris" but I model as well elsewhere. I'm a senior in good shape, tall and slim. Interesting to draw from, as some tell. Feel free to contact me if you need a live model like me.
To all you artists out there!
Amazing model and incredibly fun group! See you on Sunday!
Thank you for a fantastic afternoon of great drawing with a wonderful model and people. Really enjoyed it.
