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 hilarious and exciting performers as your unique muses.
Get out your lederhosen and dirndls! This month our buxom model Poppy Cherry will be touring Melbourne venues with her high energy show ' Oktoberfest Burlesque', under the guise of "Frida Bompalot", a bosom-jiggling beer maiden who wants nothing more than to put the burlesque into Oktoberfest and spread beer to all...
Before Frida departs on her grand adventure, she'll be bringing her beer-swilling shenanigans to Dr Sketchy's for your viewing and drawing pleasure.
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)
