Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School Melbourne

BY Melanie Knight | 14-Jul-2012
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.

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… Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School is 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. 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 phenomenal performers and other unique muses.

Bringing together students, amateurs and professionals into one space to socialize and create together! 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.” Our model on Sunday July 29th is international cabaret & burlesque artist Mimi Le Noire. Mimi Le Noire has been travelling the world setting stages ablaze and hearts on fire.

Leaving London to tease across the UK, Russia and Italy Mimi had a brief Dr Sketchy stop over in New Zealand and now joins us in Melbourne.
