The world"s original alternative drawing movement.

Whether you"re an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchy"s Anti-Art School is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun.

Art brings people together, regardless of age, colour, gender or sexual orientation.

Melbourne"s underground performance scene is an amazing source of inspiration for artists and is the well from which we draw our models, inviting them to our community where we celebrate the fun often left behind as adults with creativity and drawing.

Join us on Thursday September 14th, at 24 Moons Bar, Northcote for an night with THE KILLJOYS

The KillJoys are who your ex-boyfriend warned you about, destroying unrealistic expectations one smile at a time. Enter an explosion of sequins, circus and irreverence. KillJoy dances with truth and fantasy, politics and reality, sexuality and secrets. Come join the Evolution!

With a cast comprised of infamous Melbourne feminists, performance artists and one neuro-scientist - KillJoy is the long-awaited collaboration of the hearts and minds of Cat Scobie, Mahla Bird and Amy Broomstick (Bam Bam). KillJoy is a cross-disciplinary production, presenting a collage of surrealist vignettes that disrupt the fantasy of femininity - inviting the audience behind the curtain, to share in the secret stories that unite us in our survival.

Killjoy interrogates the power dynamics at play in objectification, gender, possession, violence, freedom, redemption, and responsibility.

Above all, KillJoy is a manifesto of the richness, the complexity, and the humanity of the feminine persona. As complex as can be told by only 3 queer women, KillJoy is an investigation of entitlement and power, a claiming of space, and an unapologetic call to arms.

We are honoured that his Dr Sketchy session will be the first sighting of KillJoy in the public domain! Catch the full show, including live band at Melbourne Fringe - Sept 25 - 30 @ The Melba Speigeltent

Dr Sketchy welcomes artists and art hobbyists of all stripes attend, those who have drawn before and those who have never picked up a pencil. This is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun where performers of all types pose. This bringing together of scenes and crossing of boundaries is essential to what we do.

Dr. Sketchy has been a boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and community in every city that runs one.

Like Kurt Vonnegut said "practising an art, no matter how well or how badly is a way to make your soul grow".
