BRATTLEBORO— The Brattleboro Museum and Art Center hosts a burlesque figure drawing event on Friday, June 13, from 7 to 9 pm. With models from Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School adorned in burlesque costumes and striking theatrical poses, artists of any experience level will find a serious—or not-so-serious—alternative to traditional life drawing classes. This lively, fun evening of sketching in a cabaret atmosphere comes complete with music and a cash bar. Only those 21 or over will be admitted, and sketchers must bring their own drawing supplies.

Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School was founded in 2005 in Brooklyn, NY, by artists Molly Crabapple and A. V. Phibes. The concept caught on and has spread to over 100 cities worldwide, attracting everyone from professional artists to those who have never drawn before, including “dog walkers, jewelry designers, tattoo artists, illustrators, and cubicle slaves,” according to the highly irreverent Dr. Sketchy’s website. These life drawing sessions offer a nonjudgmental environment for nonartists to try out drawing.

Admission is $15 ($10 for BMAC members). Pay at the door or call (802) 257-0124, ext. 101, to reserve a spot in advance.

For more information call (802) 257-0124 or visit www.brattleboromuseum.org.
