When I am not drawing pictures of
the girl I am staking my sweetheart, I’m usually not drawing pictures altogether, and probably playing World of Warcraft. But I just came across something that seems very cool – and a Lethbridge first.
I was unaware of the Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School until I saw this random tweet by Kelaine Divine, followed by a visit to her blog. Held in over 80 cities, Dr. Sketchy is what happens when cabaret meets art school; a burlesque show and life drawing event.
How is Dr. Sketchy’s different from a normal life drawing class?
In normal life classes, silent students sit in a silent room and draw a bored, oft-uninteresting model. In Dr. Sketchy’s we’ve got scandalous performers as models.
At Dr. Sketchy’s, we don’t care if you picked up a pad yesterday or 50 years ago. Come to drink or to draw. We’re happy to have you.
Kelaine Divine and Loralee Edwards will be putting on the event January 29th @ 7PM in the GCBC Lounge at Henotic. Bring a pad and some pencils – I know I will!
