You can enjoy drawing our professional life models from the safety of your home using Zoom!

Tokyo Croquis Art Online provides online life drawing live streams with professional art models. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience. There are no instructors or lectures, but we are more than happy to answer any questions that might arise. 
Life drawing is a great way for artists, cartoonists, illustrators, or designers to practice,  improve drawing styles and express themselves. This is an online art community, so feel free to eat or drink during the class.   
< Our goals  > 
・Connect from home : You can connect from home or wherever you are comfortable. 
・High quality live streaming : Drawing online is a safer alternative to classes during this pandemic. 
Our goal is to create a safe, friendly online alternative to our usual drop-in life drawing classes.  
You are invited to email your drawing to  after the event so we can upload them to our twitter, instagram or website gallery.  We will interact with you by chat, don't refrain to contact us if you have any issues.  Please kindly note that every break time's conversation will be conducted almost entirely in Japanese language.  

・Different camera angles : You will have access to 2 different camera angles of the model. This makes it easy to focus on portraiture and/or closeups if you wish.

*Natsumi has been working as an artists’ model for over a decade with painters, sculptors, photographers as well as in manga and game industries.
She modelled for most pages in a best seller book,
 ‘Drawing Human Figure’.
 Natsumi loves trying to understand each artist’s unique concept, and contribute to the birth of art works.
Her ability to produce dynamic and graceful poses stems from her training in Aikido, Japanese sword technique, and ballet. You will definitely be inspired by Natsumi!

Support Models!

If you liked the model’s work in the class, please give them your kind support.

Cancellations of drawing classes in art schools and communities under the current COVID circumstance, have been severely impacting life models’ income.We came up with the idea of ‘donation tickets’. If you were inspired by the model’s brilliant work, why don’t you purchase ‘donation tickets’ to show your warm appreciation. You can write your message to the model if you want. As little as one ticket (¥100 = $0.97) can make a difference, and the entire amount of your contribution goes to the model. Thank you!
