I’m really enjoying the atmosphere. [Fleisher Art Memorial] is a really beautiful space and the models have been interesting and unique-looking. They’re silly, but fun.

I’ve wanted to come to Dr. Sketchy’s for a long time and I’m glad I’m finally here. I think the poses are great. They’re definitely much more interesting than regular drawing classes. It’s nice to have drawings that aren’t just somebody sitting in a chair. It’s sexier.

I liked it because it’s a little bit different than the classes I’m taking. The look is interesting and I think the girl is really cute. I do mostly nude figure studies, so it’s a little bit difficult to do it with clothes on. Not difficult, it’s just a learning experience.
