Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School Melbourne celebrates 8 years of dames, drinking and drawing.

"Dr. Sketchy's will cure you of every boring art class you've ever been to." - The Sunday Age, Melbourne


Part art, part cabaret, all fun.

Our muse for June showcases the diversity that Melbourne holds, all wrapped up in a life-drawing class that celebrates the spirit of fun in creativity.  Join us as we celebrate our 8th birthday with  Music Maker/Heart Breaker, TANZER (of Twincest).


"If I created a new depravity I would be a priestess, while my imitators would founder, after my reign, in abominable filth..." 

Crackling melodrama, cinematic love stories and big ass beats - Tanzer is a pop diva translating film noir nostalgia into bombastic modern love anthems.  Blinged-out like a female Frank N' Furter with the haughty glare and big hair of a 60s film siren, this commanding chanteuse spins tales of OTT love affairs and fabulous heartbreak to a swelling, thumping soundscape. It's the soundtrack to your most devastating and delicious passion.

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 went viral after local tattooist Melanie Knight made plans with Molly from her apartment in New York to bring Dr. Sketchy's to Melbourne becoming the world's premier alternative drawing movement.  Melbourne is now the longest running session in the world, appearing on the last Sunday of every month.


Who said drawing can't be sexy, you've seen Titanic haven't you?


There are now over 150 branches in cities around the globe.  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".
