Go on.. take a drag

Drag Assassin, Agent Cleave and Drag Diva, DANDROGYNY hit the Dr Sketchy stage on Thursday 27 July at 24 Moons Bar, Northcote.

 

 

Dandrogyny. A hybrid of dance, drag, queerness, openness and love. A fusion of man, woman, other, everything, colour and shade. Dandrogyny encapsulates the beauty and the beast, the truth and the subversion of truth,and is all types of gorgeous.

 
Agent Cleave. Cabaret glamour mashed with trashy rock ‘n’ pop roar, Cleave is THE showstopper.  Spending the last 5 years touring the world dancing for Peaches and the RUB tour, Cleave returns to flood Melbourne with his blood, sweat and…. tears. yeah, his tears..

Dr Sketchy’s is back on stage!

On Monday April 24, we return in 2017 to a new venue and seduce you and your pencil with a never before seen muse. A goddess, seductress, an empress and warrior.

ChanelleRogers11
Ms Rogers, Go-Go dancer, lingerie model, womens rights advocate. The most romantic muse the Dr Sketchy stage has seen will drip her glamour and her garments throughout the evening.

Performer, exhibitionist, activist, and truly hopeless romantic, Chanelle sweeps up the most passionate of experiences and embraces them through every medium she can get her hands on.

Through her lifes work of exploring and understanding the art of exhibitionism, Chanelle finds a joy like no other in expressing herself through her body for the pleasure of others. Her heart is on her sleeve with every move and she wants you to take it and love it. Chanelle performs as much on the internet as she does on the stage.

She’s featured in live works by Boon Companions, Supple Fox, and Guerilla Museum; at the likes of Dark Mofo, Melbourne Festival, Brisbane Festival; live on Network Ten and her own instagram feed; and from adult clubs to exhibition openings across the country.

You can see more of her fetish, bondage, and erotic photography, or learn about her live performance, by following her @letsmakebeauty

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.

BABY GOT BACK

THE REBIRTH

THE CLOWN

 

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.

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!

Doors open 4.30pm

Session runs 5 – 7pm

TICKETS WILL SELL OUT!!! http://www.eventbrite.com/o/dr-sketchy-anti-art-school-melbourne-10753887938

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.
