Dr. Sketchy Tuesday Dec. 9th at the Beachland

The THIRD Cleveland Dr. Sketchy will be Tuesday, December 9th at The Beachland Ballroom. Doors open at 7:30. The drawing begins at 8PM. Entry fee is $10. Dr. Aaron says: 'Normally a session consists of one or two models, a DJ, your host and three rounds of poses. A warm up round of 1 and two minute poses, a break, some drinks, some 5 and 10 minute poses, a break, some more drinks, and then as many long poses (15-20 minute) as we can fit in. There are often acts and always prizes and contests.'

Things to Know: (from their site)
This is drawing only! No Paints or photography.
You must draw. No hanging out and acting all creepy.
We treat our models with respect. (Tipping of the model is encouraged.)
