Yes We Can Can

Life Drawing Classes with a Twist, or a Can Can…

Making a living from the arts is testing, in fact survival often demands all our creative attention. And when I meet an artist who meets this challenge with aplomb and business nous, I can only applaud. Natalya Umanska is a Norwich based burlesque dancer, pianist and life model who is combining her talents and love of visual art to open the Dr. Sketchy Anti-Art Class in the East Anglian capital.

Dr Sketchy’s  Anti –Art class is a life-drawing class with a twist, or perhaps that’s  a can-can. Glamorous models from the world of Burlesque model with their feathers and fans while artists, amateur and professional, turn out their best Toulouse Lautrec-esque sketches. And it’s all done in the best possible taste, dahlink, with wine and conviviality on hand.  Such business chutzpah and fun, always deserves a plug. So, if you’re in town come along to the upcoming class on February 27th has an ‘anti-valentine’s’ theme. 7-10pm @ the Unthank Arms, Tickets £10.50 in advance, £12.50 on the door.
