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 prizes from Blick Art Materials. 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!
We're thrilled to start off the new year with the incredible Jacqueline Boxx as our model! Here's a little bit about Jacqueline:
"In 2017, Jacqueline Boxx became the first performer to ever compete in a wheelchair for a title at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender. Her mobility aids are as enticing as her activism, and she packs an aesthetic and emotional punch, whether she brings classic tease, nerdlesque, or neo-burlesque to the stage. Her background before disability involved trapeze, circus, hooping, cabaret, theater, bellydance, swing dance, ballet, and numerous other kinds of performance art, including touring with The Dresden Dolls as part of their Brigade. Her mobility decreased gradually and these performance outlets lessened as well until she burst back onto the stage in 2015 with a renewed feeling of partnership with her disabled body. She has headlined and been featured in burlesque festivals across the globe, including being invited onto the Burlesque Hall of Fame stage twice. Jacqueline has also taught workshops and lectured on panels about mindful movement and burlesque basics across the country.
Her acts are all related in some way to her experience with chronic pain and limited mobility, and she strives to bring attention through glamour and spectacle to disability. She is: Miss Disa-burly-TEASE!"
Please note: Photography and messy paints are not allowed at Sketchy's, though watercolors are fine.
