Sketchy’s is back in Denver!
June 4 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The doctor will see you now. Make sure your art is pumping strong — hang out with us on the first Sunday of each month and sketch/draw from live models. Hosted by Denver’s beloved burlesque queen, Vivienne Vavoom, this fun evening has everything: costumed models, fun themes, cash bar, great menu items, art-lovin’ people. Plus we’ll get you home in time for your Sunday night wind down. “Started by artist Molly Crabapple in 2005, Dr. Sketchy’s is based on Molly’s harebrained dream of a ‘decadent’ art class with fair pay and respect for the models and boozy fun for all, and has branches in over a hundred cities around the globe” — Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore.
This month’s theme is “Vegas” and we have a real Vegas showgirl, Gazella, former performer in the long running Jubilee at Bally’s!
All skill levels welcome, from professional artists to office meeting doodlers. Bring your favorite drawing supplies and some cash for cocktails and tips for the models. Drinks available in the Dr. Sketchy event space located in the Bierstadt Lagerhaus and C Squared Ciders Beer Hall, if you would like to eat as well, come a little early and sample some of the great Rackhouse Pub menu upstairs beforehand.
All dry mediums are okay, as are dip pens and neat watercolor sets. No oil paints, messy mediums or stinky mediums. Photographers are welcome as long as they do not use flash and are respectful of the other artists and do not block anyone’s view. Seating is first come, first serve.
