If you study art and care for a nude model of a kind you haven’t had the chance to build up your easel in front of, you might want to register for Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. They are having a burlesque live drawing next month at the Bassy Cowboy Club. Looks like fun! Some more photos and details after the jump.
Burlesque Life-Drawing Takes Berlin
When many artists think “life drawing,” they think of sterile rooms, bad lighting, and bored, silent, models with nary a hint of personality. Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School is here to change all that.
Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is the little New York art event that became a movement. Started in 2005 by artist and burlesque dancer Molly Crabapple, the concept is simple. Artist’s draw glamorous burlesque dancers, roller derby girls, and even belly dancers compete in contests, and win wacky prizes. From it’s humble Brooklyn beginnings, Dr. Sketchy’s now has nearly 60 branches around the globe, including Hollywood, Paris, London, Rome, and Tokyo. In Germany, Dr. Sketchy’s sketches in Hamburg and Hannover.
For one night only, it’s taking over Berlin. And Molly Crabapple’s coming all the way from New York to be there.
Attendees should except a night of booze, burlesque performance, gorgeous models, and prizes. Hosted by Hedo Luxe, with Lethal Lily and Joey Love posing.
