Burlesque Art

I love burlesque…somehow its sexy without the same awful feeling as a stripper club…or maybe its just the fact that there tends to be more females enjoying the shows than dirty old men. Yeah – I think that’s it.
The women in a burlesque show are also much more real and provocative than strippers – they remind me of Marilyn Monroe. Their hair styles, their outfits, their dances and their voices take you back to a time when famous women would use their looks in the same manner to seduce their audiences (or the president)…
This weekend, you can appreciate the beauty of the burlesque and draw the burlesque queens at the Slipper Room
with Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School! “This is what happens when cabaret meets art school,” says founder and artist Molly Crabapple.
Cupcakes, booze, prizes, and new art for your boudoir!
