Whether you’re one of those enviable people who found their inner creative during lockdown or not, the fabulous Starkers Academy welcomes you, whatever your drawing ability (or lack thereof). Beamed live from the Academy itself (featured in the award-winning animation Nude Triumphant), this life drawing event will be sprinkled with theatre, laughter, and extravagance, courtesy of the inimitable ‘Professor’. 

Before taking pen, brush, or pencil to paper though, we’ll screen Nude Triumphant, a beautiful 8 minute film, which combines painting from life with experimental digital animation and was produced during lockdown with a community of Queer and intersectional life models and artists. After the screening you will be guided through 90 minutes of life drawing, with Valentina, the Starkers Academy’s own superstar model, taking centre stage and exposing her true self. All you need is yourself, your preferred drawing implement (a pencil is more than adequate) and a plethora of paper.


This event comes from the heart of Nude Triumphant’s creators, Figuration. Nude Triumphant was produced by Animate Projects and has been supported by Arts Council England. Head over to www.figuration.co/nudetriumphant to discover more.
