What happens at Dr Sketchy’s?

What happens at Dr Sketchy’s?

I often meet people who tell me, “oh yes I love Dr Sketchy, but, I can’t come….  I can’t draw”

WRONG!

That is WHY we are here!  An all inclusive, fun space where we find the most talented, electrifying and wondrous performers for you to watch, get to know, and draw.
It’s all about scribbling and being creative, not about how impossible it really is to draw fingers!

Want to see what happens!  Well, watch these videos and get along to a session.

BAM BAM hits Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne!

BAM BAM hits Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne!

It only took 10 years of Dr Sketchy’s – we FINALLY have 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 scandalous performer, she is also the revolutionary force behind GRRL FEST– mini DIY festival is designed to celebrate, encourage and inspire women* artists and performers.

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.

Strutt’s Sketching Studio

Strutt’s Sketching Studio

Calling aspiring artists and seasoned sketchers!

Presented in collaboration with the State Library of Victoria, Strutt’s Sketching Studio is special pop-up artist space, inspired by William Strutt’s acclaimed artistry.

Drop in to this free 2 day sketching studio and practise your craft, as always, we are all inclusive and this is suitable for all levels and abilities.

Relive Melbourne’s golden age, when Victoria became a separate colony, gold was discovered, bushrangers roamed and explorers launched bold expeditions into the Australian interior.

These dramatic transformations were captured in stunning paintings, sketches and drawings by William Strutt (1825–1915), whose work encompasses the brutal fury of the Australian landscape and the human drama of life in the mid-19th century.  In collaboration with, Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Melbourne these images and characters will be bought to life for your inside of Strutt’s Sketching Studio.

Art tools, boards, a selection of pencils and drawing paper will be provided. You are welcome to bring your own personal sketchbook, but please note that ink and paint are not permitted in the studio.

On Friday 23 Sept: practise portraiture and still-life with 40-minute live model sit times (20-minute poses).

On Saturday 24 Sept: contribute to a giant historical drawing, capturing models in authentic bushranger costumes, with landscape elements and a life-size model horse.

During your day, visit Heroes and villains: Strutt’s Australia and see examples of William Strutt’s masterful portaiture, preparatory sketches and large-scale historical paintings.

BABY GOT BACK!
