Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School
Dr. Sketchy’s is an interesting hybrid between art school life drawing classes and a burlesque performance. Attendees gather to drink, socialize and draw unusual models (think: circus freaks, ballet and burlesque dancers and muscle men). The event takes the stuffynes out of the art class experience and encourages light hearted fun with drawing contests and comedy skits. They encourage anyone to come too, whether a pro artist, or rank amateur – it’s more about the experience than making a masterpiece. Dr. Sketchy’s happens in Williamsburg, Brooklyn every other Sunday, and has branched out to 53 cities around the world.
