Dr. Sketchy’s is back, on Sunday, June 5th!  This month’s model is Misha Minx.  Don’t miss out—these events can be crowded, and they are first come, first served!

 Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School:  Presented by The Modbo and Peaks and Pasties Burlesque Troupe. Occurring every first Sunday from 6-7:30 pm, This month’s is on Sunday, June 5th.  A strongly suggested $15 donation.  An open figure drawing session with a serious twist.

 The Modbo is pleased as punch to announce that is now an official branch of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School and in partnership with our local burlesque troupe, Peaks and Pasties.  Dr. Sketchy’s is an open figure drawing session with a twist— the models are burlesque dancers and the atmosphere is not exactly what you’d expect from a traditional art class.

 Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is the world’s premier alternative drawing movement and quite possibly the coolest art class you’ll ever go to.  Ever month, over 3,500 people gather in nearly a hundred cities. Dr. Sketchy’s was founded in 2005 in a dive bar in Brooklyn by two artists.  You absolutely do not need to be an artist to attend this event.  For more information on Dr. Sketchy’s, go to For more information on Peaks and Pasties, please contact Lola Spitfire at  And as ever, you can reach The Modbo at                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Another busy Art filled weekend brought to you by the Modbo.  Hope to see you!
