Dr Sketchy's

It has been a long time since I have attended any sort of art class, and so I'm VERY excited about attending Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School's life drawing class here in Amsterdam tomorrow evening. Just my thing!

Who is Dr Sketchy, you ask? Well, a great way to get the gist of this art institution is from their self-penned blurb on the official website:
Since 2005, Dr. Sketchy's has been the name in alternative drawing. From illegal flashmobs to the Museum of Modern Art, Dr. Sketchy's has brought artists a rule-breaking cocktail of dames, drinking and drawing. Dr. Sketchy's branches draw in over a hundred cities around the globe, from Akron to Zagreb. Whether you're an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchy's is the perfect place to get your fill of life-drawing.

Dr Sketchy's life-drawing events are famous for their alternative models and anti-establishment atmosphere. The Amsterdam event's models will be Burlesque performers, and we will be sketching away to the sounds of a live band. 

Best yet is the party that will happen afterwards, featuring performances from the earlier models and even more great music and dancing. And, coincidentally, this all occurs two days before my birthday, so I'm hijacking the party for my own personal celebrations. 

Let's hope I don't spill a drink on my sketches!
