Dr. Sketchy's San Francisco's
May Session 2009!
Join us the day after Memorial Day to draw the very first Dr. Sketchy's model ever, the amazingly talented Burlesque superstar, Dottie Lux! The Burlesque Times just voted her The Best Burlesque Performer of the Month of May!
We love Dottie!!!
Just like The City By The Bay, Dottie is known for her dizzying hills and dangerous curves. Well, hello San Francisco! She's here.
Hailing from New York City, where she's known to cause a rucus with a horn, shake it up and bring bawdy brouhaha to well known stages like Coney Island Side Show, The Supper Club and Bowery Poetry Club. Also an educator, she has performed and lectured at NYU and Bard University. New Orleans, Boston, Baltimore, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Seattle have all got a taste of Dottie's chuckles, bumps and grinds. Dottie also runs the Red Hots Burlesque night at El Rio in the Mission every Friday night!
Don't miss your chance to sketch Dottie!
This month we are inviting everyone who participates in the workshop to put their favorite drawings on display for the evening with the option to sell them if you want. We will be putting display walls up for everyone to see, so please invite your non-sketcher friends to come and check out the art and hang at the bar! (21 and older)
As always our sponsor Baby Tattoo Books is providing beautifully printed books which we will give away as prizes for each month's drawing contest.
ART + BURLESQUE + BOOOZE + PRIZES = FUN!
