Dr. Sketchy's will cure you of every boring art class you've ever been to." - The Sunday Age, Melbourne
Throughout history artists have paid beautiful courtesans to sit for their most intimate works. Lautrec, Klimt, Schiele, the list goes on. Now, you can join them…
Tired of bowls of fruit and lifeless life classes? Fancy having a scribble but not sure where to start? Part art, part cabaret, all fun.
The world's premier alternative drawing movement. Whether you're an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchy's is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun. Come sketch glamorous underground performers, listen to good tunes, and drink great cocktails.
Dr Sketchy's 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 of all abilities to draw the flourishing alternative scenes that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist.
Harxest 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".
Drum roll please for our May muse, Australia's French Jewel - Bijou LaLa. Crowned second place in Miss Burlesque Australia 2012 and winning the title of Miss Revival, a fire cracker entertainer best known for her hilarious theatrics and wicked dance skills Bijou is an experienced fan twirler, samba shaker, hip-hopper and parkour wild woman!
A wicked temptress who indulges in all things French, she has one thing to ask you… Is that a baguette in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
You might remember Bijou's hilarious "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" act? Who could forget the Bijou was the WORLD'S FIRST pregnant Dr Sketchy muse with her Papa Don't Preach number.
This May be prepared to stand to attention as Bijou brings her Marching Band Skipping Girl to the stage.
Leave your drums behind - but do bring your sketch pad and pencils!
