Dr Sketchy's York Presents: Strike a Pose Thursday 6 April 2017 The Basement Bar - City Screen
In partnership with FASHION CITY YORK, on Thursday 6 April we’ll be exploring a century of style at Dr Sketchy’s York Present: Strike a Pose – Celebrating 100 years of British Vogue with an evening of drawing, drinking and burlesque.
Our cover models will help you discover the world of fashion throughout the past century from the Roaring Twenties to the Swinging Sixties, as the heels got higher and the hems shorter. It’s time to loosen your stays, burn your bras, and get ready for a night of haute couture and radical fashion.
As always, we’ll provide all the art materials you need to create your sketches of our life models, all of whom will be styled in iconic outfits that span the decades of Vogue. Every level of artistic experience welcome – we don’t care if you draw every day or haven’t picked up a pencil in years if you’re willing to give it a try and have a good time.
-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.

Exhibition of paintings by Artist Adam Keay 21 - 29 April 2017 City Screen
Through the course of producing my work I had been destroying and resurfacing the paintings more and more frequently. I then made the conscious decision to make this process of chance discovery central to my interrogation of painting.
