Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School: Baltimore


THU MAR 10 | 7PM
$12, $10 mbrs.

A livelier life drawing event, Dr. Sketchy's is where artists of all levels draw fabulous burlesque and variety performers. Enjoy delicious cocktails and a performance by the model, and compete in fun contests to win free drinks and other awesome prizes! We'll start off with quick 1- and 2-minute gesture poses and gradually move up to 20-minute sketches. No drawing experience is necessary; just bring your own drawing materials—and cash tips for our model—and join us for some fun figure sketching practice! 

Join us for what's sure to be a spectacular night of sipping and sketching featuring the beautiful Betty O'Hellno as our model and performer! Enjoy a delicious cocktail or three and join in our crazy drawing contests for a chance to win some neat prizes. No drawing experience is necessary—just remember to bring your own drawing materials, and be ready to generously tip Betty.

Here's a little bit about Betty:

"Betty O'Hellno is a queer drag artist and burlesque performer based in Baltimore, MD. From shaking it at dive bars to swirling dramatic feather fans at the Kennedy Center; from dancing at the Black Cat to opening for music acts at the 9:30 Club, Betty has performed on every stage imaginable! Betty has been the sparkling diamond descending from the ceiling of a Victorian Theater and has even had the honor of gracing the cover of Baltimore Magazine. Betty believes wholeheartedly in the incredible healing power of rhinestone sparkles and the positive celebration of the human body in all of its beautiful forms. Follow her on Instagram @bettyohellno for more sparkle!"

Doors at 6:30—show up early to get a good seat! 18+ to draw, 21+ to drink.
BYO drawing supplies. No photography or messy paints, please (watercolors are fine).
