Dr. Sketchy’s: Vitamin D

Wednesday, 10 March from 6:00 pm-9:00 pm

For Christchurch Pride 2021, Dr. Sketchy’s is serving up a dose of life drawing, with a scorching side of burlesque. The sun might be setting on summer, but we’d like to celebrate good ol’ Vitamin D!
In this ode to the sun, you’ll be blinded by our shining star – the multi talented dancer and performer, AKA Damian! He’ll erect his mighty pole right in the foyer of the Christchurch Art Gallery. If you stare directly, he’ll tell you to “draw a picture, it’ll last longer.”
Your sketchy hosts are Tawdry Trainwreck, Rosie Reckless and Mythical Haze. These three love nothing more than to lie back, catch some rays, and soak up all that Vitamin D.
Wanna dress up? Costumes are encouraged! Dress to celebrate the summer, or to worship the D.
All artistic abilities are welcome to come along and have a drink and a doodle. Free entry and open to all ages (parental guidance recommended as there’ll be lots of D-lightful banter). Drawing materials supplied, but you’re welcome to bring your own art packages if you prefer.
First pose from 6.30pm. Arrive earlier to enjoy the surroundings. The gallery will be open late until 9pm.
May the sun shine on our wonderful sponsors: Absolution Pierce and Tattoo, Gordon Harris Art Supplies, and Gryymstone and Treacle Emporium. Also thanks to our hosts at the gallery, and to Christchurch Pride.
