Dr. Sketchy San Francisco presents Talia this Tuesday, November 16

Dr. Sketchy's SF presents local art model and aerialist Talia this Tuesday at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco (map).

What is Dr. Sketchy's? It's an opportunity for you to learn to draw—or to improve your drawing skills—using a live model. It's the anti-art school! Plus, it's a chance to socialize with your fellow artists over a drink in a fun and pressure-free atmosphere. It's part of a network of Dr. Sketchy's worldwide!

The regular Dr. Sketchy's session begins at 7:00 p.m., and it usually ends at about 10:00 p.m. What usually happens is that the first few poses are relatively short at a few minutes, then they get longer as the evening goes on. There will probably be a few breaks during the evening, both for the artists and the model. Those breaks will be a good opportunity to get a drink from the bar or to schmooze!

In addition, there will be a drawing workshop with one of Dr. Sketchy's organizers, Diane Olivier, just before the regular session. She's on the faculty of City College of San Francisco, and she'll help you to become the artist you've always wanted to be! The workshop runs from 5:30 to 6:30, and it's limited to the first 12 people. The fee is $20, but it includes a front row seat at the Dr. Sketchy's session! Email Diane to reserve your spot today!
