I've been trying to get out to do more life drawing and one of the happenings that we have here in SD is the Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School. There are different clubs in major cities across the country. What they do is every third Saturday in North Park (yeah!) at the Blue Foot Bar they have different burlesque and exotic dancers/models come to this bar and they pose in their costumes and you basically drink and draw for a couple hours and there are also "drawing contests".
Its pretty interesting and the turn out is good so you have to get there early to get a good seat.
This last session, they invited two belly dancers to model for us and last month they had a great model dress up as a Vampire for Halloween. In December there will be a naughty Santa's helper girl or something.
This last one, she was suppose to be doing something with a turkey. The contests are a little hokey sometimes but whatever...
