The typical model for a sketch class isnt a paragon of youth and beauty. Liver-spotted skin and a preponderance of flesh can be inspiring, even under the scrutiny of a stale-breathed professor and among the occasional geriatric boner. But the idea of depicting a stone-cold fox has its inspirational appeal, too. Add tassel-covered bras, booze and bizarre contests and you arrive at the confluence of bright ideas that is Dr. Sketchys Anti-Art School
. The global phenomenon now boasts outposts in 40 cities. At the biweekly KC version, pros, amateurs and remedial dabblers can gather to render the buoyant bodies of local burlesque gals such as Etta Vendetta and Annie Cherry. The next Dr. Sketchys session is tonight from 6 to 10 at 1331 Union Avenue in the West Bottoms. The cost is $5. You have no boners to fear but your own.
