If you've never been to a Dr. Sketchy event, it's like a drawing class on enhancements. You have the guest model/performer present who will engage in various poses for lengthening amounts of time. There's usually music playing and contests, so the mood is upbeat. And during the breaks, you can chat with your fellow artists or get something to drink at the bar. Very cool!
Also, if you have been experiencing some difficulties with your drawings, Diane Olivier is here to help! From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at 111 Minna, she will be conducting a clinic for those who are seeking assistance. Email Diane with a list of your symptoms, and pay $20.00 (which includes front row seats at Dr. Sketchy's). The clinic is limited to 12 participants, so email her today! A full description of the clinic is below in the event description.
So this Tuesday, bring your favorite drawing materials to 111 Minna Gallery, which is located at 111 Minna Street in San Francisco (map). Though the event starts at 7:00, I'd recommend people arrive by 6:30 to get a good place to sketch. The cost to attend is now $12.00 general, and $10.00 for students and teachers. You also need to be 21 years of age or older to participate.
Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School: San Francisco presents The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence!
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence® is a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since our first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted ourselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty and we use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.
