Tired of bowls of fruit and lifeless life classes?
Fancy having a scribble but not sure where to start?
Fancy some fun on a Sunday afternoon?
Booze, Tunes, Performance, Sketching.
Part art, part cabaret, all fun. Melbourne's original burlesque life drawing event.
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, with Melbourne proudly the longest running satelitte outside of the NY HQ.
This month we lay out the red carpet and sound the trumpets for Australia's reigning Queen of burlesque, The Strawberry Siren. The Strawberry Siren has been dazzling Burlesque audiences worldwide for the last 6 years drawing on her 18 year background in Circus, Theatre and Dance to provide a fresh and fancy take on Burlesque that she's dubbed Cirlesque.
Not only a Burlesque Queen Downunder, Strawberry has recently been setting the northern hemisphere on fire, sizzling and scorching her way through the London BurlesqueFest, Los Angeles, Kansas, Vancouver and New Orleans Burlesque Festivals!
"The Strawberry Siren is the Tarantino of Burlesque.... Sexy and dangerous!"
King Henry the Eighth,
to six wives he was wedded.
One died, one survived,
two divorced, two beheaded.
Queen Strawberry will be paying homage to the Wives of King VIII with the most spectauclar of tudor inspired outfits. Join us as we kill off these woman with our mighty pencils!
Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art Schools has been 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 hilarious and exciting performers as your unique muses.
Dr. Sketchy's is for everyone, no previous artistic ability required. The world's premier alternative drawing movement.
Harzest Mag describes the event as "a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times".
Please bring your own sketchpad and art materials
