Nona Narcisse is one of New Orleans’ most captivating burlesque performers, so I’m thrilled that she’ll be modeling for our very first Dr. Sketchy’s figure drawing night. I’ve seen the lovely Ms. Narcisse perform a number of times, and I’m always impressed by the way she carries herself; she has the grace and timing of a classically trained dancer, with a rare kind of charm and charisma that is truly a joy to behold.
To top all of this off she’s totally gorgeous. And nice! So it’s no surprise that as a huge fan of hers I’m so excited about this Friday. The class is going to involve short sessions over the course of 3 hours, and multiple scintillating costume changes. There will also be drinks available, because this is New Orleans after all, and the Dr. Sketchy’s approach to figure drawing is loose and bawdy, kind of a vaudevillian attitude towards art. No previous art skills are required to participate. If you’re only capable of drawing stick figures that’s fine since hanging out, having a few drinks, and spending some time with the incomparable Nona Narcisse is clearly the most fun thing you could be doing during these hours anyhow.
