We had so much fun the first time around, we’ve decided to do it again! Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is Invading the Fort Myers Art Walk!
Come Draw with me! Artists of all skill levels welcome and encouraged! We will be having an informal Dr. Sketchy Event in front of the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in the Downtown Fort Myers River District…We’ll be doing 5 minute poses during the Art Walk. Bring your art supplies (iPads/iPods Welcome) and lets meet up for a little impromptu sketching session. I’ll be bringing some extra paper and pencils for anyone who feels like just stopping by.
This will be a free event but I will be putting out a Tip Jar so anything you can throw in will go toward Paying the Model and the extra Paper/Pencil supplies as well as a portion to the Art Center. Come make Art and Support the Arts!
Our Muse for the evening will be a tasty bit of eye candy, quite literally! Posing for us will be the sweet Autumn Skye adorned with a candy-striper-inspired burlesque outfit for your sketching pleasure. We'll be setting up Friday, August 5th around 6-6:30 in front of the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in the Downtown Fort Myers River District…We’ll handing out candy and doing 5 minute poses during the Art Walk.
Autumn Skye is a local burlesque performer and founder of Hen House Entertainment, which is a LGBT friendly, women-based entertainment troupe centered in Fort Myers. In all, the ensemble consists of five teasing burlesque chicks and seven male-impersonating drag kings. The queens of burlesque are dramatic, sometimes quirky, but always seductive, offering frill and femininity. You can learn more about the Hen House and view their Performance Schedules at their website: http://www.HenHouseEntertainment.com
