If you’ve been meaning to brush up on your drawing skills without having a snooty art teacher breathing down your neck, consider attending the inaugural session of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. Dr. Sketchy prescribes a titillating combination of elements for his students: Rather than hiring a horrifying nude beast to pose statically in a frigid classroom, burlesque performers act as muses in a casual setting. First up to bat at this avant-garde salon is belly-dancing, hula-hooping sensation S.T. Shimi. After a few cold ones, the lines should start drawing themselves. $8 for table seating, $5 for a chair facing the stage, $3 for standing or bar seating, 6-9pm, the Pedicab Bar & Grill, 401 E. Cevallos, (210) 388-2557, drsketchysa.com.
