3rd Annual All-Star Session at The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 6/5/10

The 3rd Annual All-Star session of Las Vegas Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School at The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend will be held Saturday June 5th from 1-4pm at Firefly inside The Plaza Hotel and Casino. The Plaza is located at 1 South Main Street Las Vegas, NV. The Firefly is located on the 2nd floor of The Plaza.


Las Vegas Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School is a life/figure drawing session with a twist. Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School is the little New York art event that has become an international movement. Started in 2005 by artist and Burlesque Performer Molly Crabapple, the concept is simple... Artists draw glamorous burlesque dancers and performance artists, compete in contests, and win wacky prizes. Oh yeah, there's booze too. From its humble beginnings in Brooklyn, Dr. Sketchy's now has over 110 branches from Hollywood to Helsinki, including London, Rome, Tokyo, Berlin, Melbourne, and now Las Vegas! Dr. Sketchy's will cure you of every boring art class you've ever been to. The common view on life-drawing classes involves a silent room, a bored model, and no liquor in sight. At Dr. Sketchy's it's different.


Admission is FREE! But please tip. There will be no reserve seating, so please come early to catch a good seat and a table. We will be allowing a few photographers, but you need to contact Las Vegas Dr. Sketchy's ahead of time to reserve a spot. Please no flash photography! There will be contests and prizes! Prizes provided by Dr. Sketchy's Las Vegas and Baby Tattoo Books. E-mail lasvegasdrsketchys@yahoo.com for more information.

Baby Le'Strange
Photobucket
Baby grew up in the dirty steel town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Named after a song from glitter rock icons T. Rex, Baby was destined to take to the stage. At an early age her mother enrolled her in dance lessons, but it quickly became clear that Baby would much rather dance wild and free than follow the rigid rules set by her instructor. With such a reputation to live up to, Baby set her sights on rock ‘n roll. She longed to perform on stage like all the rock stars she envied. In 2007 Baby had an amazing realization - she could
take her rock ‘n roll dreams to the burlesque stage! Baby’s style is inspired of three of her favorite things: classic burlesque, glam rock and female superheros. Baby has been seen all over Oregon and Washington. She has also appeared on the Tease O Rama 2008 Road Show and the Texas Burlesque Fest.
Festival 2010.
