Dr. Sketchy

The traditional academic life drawing class; subdued, classical poses. Dr. Sketchy is the opposite of that academic environment. It was founded in 2005 by an artist in Brooklyn, Molly Crabapple. In her explanation of the project she states, "We combed New York to find the most beautiful burlesque dancers, the most bizarre circus freaks, and the most rippling hunks of man. Then, every other Saturday, we let you draw them for three hours. Interspersed with posing are comedy skits and ridiculous drawing contests (best left handed drawing? Best incorporation of a woodland animal?)" Sounds like fun to me.
