This week’s edition of Tuesday Tease brings us back to the home of Brown Paper Tickets in Seattle for an event that is a little bit different from your average bump and grind show.
On Sunday, August 19, Julia’s on Broadway will be home to Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. Presented by The Academy of Burlesque and hosted by Ernie Von Schmaltz, this monthly event was started seven years ago by Molly Crabapple in New York and has since spread to more than 80 cities in every corner of the world.
The Seattle incarnation has been ongoing for more than four years, showcasing an array of performers from Seattle’s burlesque, boylesque and circus communities to model for this one of a kind life drawing class. Dr. Sketchy’s will hone your artistic skills and give you a lesson in the 3 D’s: drinking, drawing and debauchery. You can pick up your tickets right over here.
Here’s a great little mini-doc on the Glasgow, Scotland chapter of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School.
The model on hand this month will be the amazingly talented Seraphina Fiero. Seraphina has been preforming belly dance and burlesque since 2008 and will be posing for this 3 hour session from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Between Seraphina’s poses you can refresh yourself with Julia’s on Broadway’s happy hour menu and pit your talents against other artist in drawing contests, including best left-handed drawing and best incorporation of a woodland animal, to win “weird and awesome” prizes.
Can’t make it out this month? You can catch Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School on the third Sunday of each month at Julia’s on Broadway.
