Part art, part cabaret, ALL FUN!
Fancy a scribble but not sure where to start? This is the world’s premier alternative drawing movement.
Like Kurt Vonnegut said “practising an art, no matter how well or how badly is a way to make your soul grow”.
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.”
This month we hit hard, with the Melbourne premiere of BAM BAM to the Dr Sketchy stage. Yes.. 10 years of Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School and we FINALLY GOT HER.
Bam Bam is a force to be reckoned with. Powerful, mesmerising, tender and strange.
This dangerous woman will take you on an uncomfortable journey into a dark world of desire and unrealistic expectations.
“Bam Bam is a dream from another time, a nightmare from another world”.
Not only is Bam Bam a scandelous performer, she is also the revolutionary force behind GRRL FEST - mini DIY festival is designed to celebrate, encourage and inspire women* artists and performers.
“Bam Bam steals the show… with a little bit of sex and a whole lot of wrong combined!” – Aussie Theatre Review, 2014.
Art brings people together, regardless of age, colour, gender or sexual orientation. Theatre and the visual arts have been separated for too long. We seek to combine them, providing a space for people of all abilities to draw the flourishing alternative performance scene that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist. This bringing together of scenes and crossing of boundaries is essential to what we do.
We have teamed up with the wonderfully curious and strange beinArt Gallery. Ushering in the New Contemporary art movement to Australia, beinArt Gallery are passionate about raising the profiles of Australian artists to an international stage.
Dr. Sketchy has been a boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and community in every city that runs one. A wildly inclusive event– young and old, 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.
DONT FORGET YOUR SKETCH PAD AND PENCILS!
