"Grab a few beers, a sketchpad, and one buxom model with waist-length purple hair and call me in the morning," would go Dr. Sketchy's recommendation to cure what ails you. Dr. Sketchy is not a practicing physician, however, but an alternative drawing concept that has spread like gangbusters across the globe. Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School adds a raucous and raunchy flair to the normally drab figure-drawing class by infusing it with alcohol and using unorthodox models, such as burlesque dancers, to enliven the mood. South Florida's chapter event occurs every first Thursday of the month at Fort Lauderdale watering hole Five Points Lounge. This week's theme is "Kid Cadet in Candyland," Kid Cadet being the curvy figure model with purple bangs and Candyland being the colorful saccharine-themed childhood board game that is the background set. This risqué live drawing class begins at 7 p.m. Thursday at Five Points Lounge, located at 2608 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
