Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School

Tired of bowls of fruit and lifeless life drawing classes?

Fancy a scribble but not sure where to start?

Suffering creative inertia and looking to stoke your lost muse?

The world’s premier alternative life drawing movement. Whether you’re an artstar or a scribbling newbie,  Dr. Sketchys is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun.  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.” 

Providing a welcoming and joyful space where people come to draw the flourishing alternative scenes that include phenomenal performers and other unique muses that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist.   Spend a few hours sketching them with the aid of drinks and tunes.

Melbourne is now the oldest session in the world beginning back in July of 2006.  A boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and community in every city that runs one.   

Recent years has seen a formidable array of performers hit the Dr. Sketchy stage, with some of the country’s most unique and inspiring performers we greeted Tim Rogers of You am I, dancers of The Australian Ballet, a string of summer sessions in The Famous Spiegeltent featuring star of BRIEFS – The King of Boylesque Mark “Captain Kidd’ Winmill, and most recently a 4 part pop-up in 2018 with Heidi Museum of Modern Art.
