First: Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School is a national group out of New York whose members share a passion for, well, sketching, and who ask the question: Why can’t drawing naked people be sexy? A Dr. Sketchy’s event offers drinks, snacks and door prizes, but the main features are burlesque dancers who hold different poses for up to 20 minutes in order to be sketched.
Eric Stanton, the inspiration for “Dr. Sketchy’s Ode to Eric Stanton,” was an American bondage and fetish illustrator, cartoonist and comic book artist, much of whose work was devoted to female dominance scenarios.
Dec. 14, members of Indy’s Bottoms Up Burlesque, Helen HighHeels and Dee Moraleyes, will hold a series of poses based loosely on Stanton’s artwork at Alchemy Art + Aesthetics (1043 Virginia Ave.) to benefit the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and posing starts at 9 p.m. There will be NO nudity and artists are encouraged to bring their own supplies. Admission is $10 and all money goes to Y-ME.
