“It’s all a bit Toulouse-Lautrec”- The Sunday Age, Melbourne Part art, part cabaret, all fun. 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 uninspired art classes? Fancy having a scribble but not sure where to start? Need to express yourself on a Sunday afternoon? It's our 2015 season launch! We're back and fired up to bring you the very loveliest, funniest, charming and most talented performers Melbourne's shiney dirty underground has to offer. 

We blast into 2015 with the hilarious heartbreaker, Honey B. Goode. Known as the queen of quirk, Honey has forged a reputation as an original, charismatic and surprising performer. Synthesising her training in modern and classical dance, physical theatre and the dramatic arts, this chameleon-like ecdysiast delights in pushing the boundaries of burlesque. 

With performances ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, this dazzling dame only asks that you expect the unexpected. Be good, and if you can't be good Be good at being bad like Every girl should, honey be good 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 artist Melanie Knight made plans with Molly from her apartment in New York to bring Dr. Sketchy’s to Melbourne. There are now over 150 branches in cities around the globe with Melbourne the longest runninng session. The world’s premier alternative drawing movement. It's wildly inclusive – young and old, those who have drawn before, and those who have never picked up a pencil in their lives. Dr. Sketchy’s is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun. 

Come sketch glamorous underground performers, listen to good tunes, drink great cocktails and get creative. Who said drawing can't be sexy, you've seen Titanic haven't you? 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”. Don't forget your sketch pad and pencils! MORE: W: drsketchymelbourne.com E: hello@drsketchymelbourne.com F: www.facebook.com/groups/7707942862/ I: @DrSketchyMelbourne V: vimeo.com/111088643
