Dr. Sketchy’s Burlesque Art Salon
Unexpectedly this is one of the most cheeky and fun events. Guest models are changing daily in this life drawing session with a twist. New Burlesque is quite trendy now after appearing in popular television series such as America’s Next Top Model or America’s Got Talent as a glorified upper-class mimicking strip tease act in 1920er style with imaginative use of props.
So it was surprising when suddenly the Marx Brothers from “Waiting for Groucho” appeared on stage and threw themselves into pose to be quickly sketched down with coal or pencil as superheroes or the seven world wonders.
But unfortunately Groucho, Harpo and Chico kept their trousers on, so there wasn’t actually much Burlesque erotic happening in this lesson.
