Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School is the little Brooklyn event that became a movement. Founded in 2005 by New York illustrator Molly Crabapple, Dr Sketchy's has become the world's premier alternative drawing event.
A boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and community in every city that runs one. Providing a space for people to draw the flourishing alternative scenes that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist, presenting phenomenal performers and other unique muses.
This month we travel to Venus, the planet named after the goddess of love and beauty where we find our muse, Lola Ramone! Lola is a Melbourne based performer who has carried her love of the brashness and beauty of Americana and Atomic Age into a brand of burlesque that is at once gaudy, gorgeous and playfully perverse.
Dr. Sketchy's is for everyone, no previous artistic ability required. The world's premier alternative drawing movement.
Harzest Mag desucribes the event as "a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times".
Time: 4.00am-6.00pm (Doors 3.30pm)
Please bring your own sketchpad and art materials
