Come to the Ruby Room on May 16th & Get in on Some "Sketchy" Action!

You do not want to miss this one! What could be better than spending an afternoon drawing live models? Drawing live models at a cocktail lounge, of course! This Saturday, May 16th, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School will be happening at the Ruby Room in Hillcrest from 3 - 6 pm. You bring your sketch pad, drawing supplies, and some cash for libations from the bar, and Dr. Sketchy provides the models! Each month the good doctor brings burlesque dancers, belly dancers, and now - roller girls! This month will feature members of San Diego Roller Derby in their derby best and some other fun costumes. What kind of costumes? That's a secret. You'll have to check it out and see! Who exactly is Dr. Sketchy? Dr. Sketchy’s is the little Brooklyn event that became a movement. It was founded in 2005 by artist Molly Crabapple, Dr. Sketchy’s asked a simple question. Why can’t drawing people be sexy? From its humble Brooklyn beginnings, Dr. Sketchy’s now has 70+ branches around the globe, including Hollywood, London, Tokyo, Rome, and Melbourne. Since it’s successful launch during Comic Con 2007, Dr. Sketchy’s San Diego branch has been going strong each month. It's great fun and you can even win a prize for your drawing! This month there will be prizes donated by your own Craft Mafia and the SDRD. You have to draw to win! We want to see you there!
