Last night I was part of a historical first in Vermont: Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School at the Big Picture Theater in Waitsfield. Around 20 artists mingled in the Red Theater with model Trish Denton, of Burlingtonâs Spielpalast Cabaret – armed and ready for an evening of creativity and fun.
It was amazing to see how everyone had their unique view – some painted, some sketched and some created collage. I attempted to sketch and was promptly reminded that I am a graphic designer and photographer and not a figure artist. The ad had said “work in any medium” – so I put down my pencil and picked up what I know best: my camera. But next time I plan to come ready to give it my all – even if it includes a lot of erasing!
There are more events planned!
Dr. Sketchy’s meets the last Thursday of each month for four months:
March 25, April 29, May 27 & June 24.
7-10pm. $8 includes model, music, moderator, free drink & prizes!
