Let's get naked

Ah, New England Mamas.

New England ain’t so provincial after all.

‘Cuz here in Providence we are, by nature of definition, guided by God and nature.

And that “nature” part is now expressed beautifully and bountifully at our very own Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. (OK. There are indeed 39 Dr. Sketchy Clubs around the world, in cities such as Melbourne, Tokyo, London, Rome and New York. But I’m certainly frolickingly gleeful to have our own little Providence among them. It almost makes me want to get naked. Almost, I said.)

So here’s the skin-ny.

Combine a traditional figure drawing class with burlesque. And what do you get?

You get “it.” You get the storytelling of the body. You get the sensuality. You get the intrigue.

You get the pose, the presence, the possibilities, the profound provocativeness of at all.

And for the 17 artist attendees who ditched the standard stuffy classroom with the oft times emotionless nude models, and replaced it with the hot Hi Hat club (complete with smooth, sensual jazz), a couple of drinks and the playful art of burlesque performers… ProvSketchy’s kick-off was a sensation.

So who just who are these local let’s-bring-sexy-to-the-solitary-pursuit-of-art dance storytellers?

Providence’s own Briana Masterson (aka Miss B) and Eve Wartenberg Condon (aka Eve Destruction), co-founders of the BellaMinx Burly-Q Burlesque Troupe.

These women know art. They are artists. They understand both the wonder and the dignity of the human body.

Thank Providence that Miss B and Eve Destruction recognize that all art is a kind of creativity. Form. Force. Stimulation. Translation.

All art, in every form, is the contemplation of life.

Ah, New England Mamas.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that in various stages of undress we could all promote the potential success of struggling artists?

All right… I will leave that pure cheesecake magic to the burlesque artists.

While I just have another piece of cheesecake.

You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation however
I find this topic to be actually something which I feel I'd by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me. I am having a look forward for your next post, I'll attempt to
get the grasp of it!
