I arrived at the RVT for a session of Dr.Sketchy’s, having never been to the venue before.
The venue was perfect for a drawing/ performance as the stage is hugged by multi level seating arrangements, the bar neatly tucked off to one side.
Dr. Sketchy is the brain child of New York’s own Molly Crabbleapple, and on this night it brought all the fun of the Big Apple to Vauxhall, with the ‘nipples in tassels’ approach to spicing up life drawing! A huge sigh of relief was collectively echoed as the host told us that “there is no right or wrong at Dr.Sketchy” as long as our sketches were not “feathery or feeble”.
For me the best part about the night, apart from the rather lovely (and cheaply priced) vegetarian platter for two that fed three of us, was the music. Burlesque dancers own, as well as some classics (notably ‘Come Together’ by the Beatles). I can assure you music is never present, unless of the classical variety, in a normal life drawing class, and now I can only but wonder why.
