Dr Sketchy's York Salty Seadogs and Watery Wenches
Thursday 3 August 2017
The Basement Bar - City Screen
All aboard the good ship Sketchy!

We’re going on a naughty-cal life drawing adventure to raise money for ARRRRR friends at The Arts Barge Project on Thursday 03 August and Captain Sketchy needs a crew. So grab your bottle of rum and hold on to your booty, things are going to get seriously salty…

Featuring splashing and dashing burlesque from the CATALINA DE LA VIDA!

To err is human, but to arrr is pirate. Captain Sketchy doesn’t care what you draw or how, as long as you have an awesome time trying. Old hands and pasty landlubbers are all welcome here. We’ll be stocking up on all the supplies you’ll need to set sail on a sketching adventure and will have a variety of scurvy seadogs and watery wenches to pose for your drawing pleasure.

What’s a pirate’s favourite letter? You might think it’s ARRR but nay, his first love is the C.

Remember, all profits from the night will be donated to the fabulous folks at the ArtsBarge, so dig out yer’ buried treasure and come to The Basement Bar at City Screen for an evening of drinking, drawing, burlesque, and PIRATES!

- City Screen Basement Bar.

- Doors: 7.30pm. We will be starting promptly at 7.45 (Feel free to arrive later, but be aware you will miss some poses)

- £8 on the door, £7 advance tickets (via City Screen Website) or with valid student ID.

- Paper, pencils, and some other materials are provided, but feel free to bring your own.

- Hosted by your friendly neighbourhood Dr Sketchy’s Team!

At Dr Sketchy’s we seek to shake up the traditional life drawing experience– there will be no-one telling you how to draw, what to draw with or at what pace. We celebrate drawing the way you've always wanted to. We're not a serious art class, just a lot of Art Monkeys giving it a go in a relaxed atmosphere.

We love audience input and involvement. Please let us know what you think, and what themes you would like.
