Get your pencils ready

After making guest appearances at branches in Kansas City and Oklahoma City, the ladies of Eye Candy Burlesque will bring Dr. Sketchy's Anti Art School to Tulsa this spring.

The concept is to make drawing the human form fun and sexy by using burlesque dancers as models. The idea originated in Brooklyn in 2005 and, since then, branches have popped up all over the country in art galleries, theaters and clubs, combining live drawing with risque humor, and performance. There's drinking, laughter, games and prizes for the "best" drawings. For those who don't draw, it's an opportunity to hang out with some sexy women and have a good time. For those to do draw, it's a "cure... for every boring art class you've ever been to." (The Sunday Age, Melborne)

The tentative date and location are May 17 at the First Street Music Hall (emphasis on tentative). I'll be sure to let you know when plans are finalized. Until then, be sure to pencil this in on your calendar.
