Ever wondered what happens inside Dr Sketchy’s?

Gorgeous Art Monkeys!

We have something VERY SPECIAL!!!

I’m very excited to share a new project we’re working on. Creating videos of Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Melbourne so peoples can see all the fun and art making that happens.

60 seconds of goodness. Please  share and spread the good word!!

This is from our recent Halloween session with Betty Blood and of course all you very good looking people!

Join us for our 2014 Finale with Porcelain Alice on SUNDAY DECEMBER 7!

Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School and the sideshow scallywag..

I remember when I turned 8, there were balloons, pin the tail on the donkey and jelly-filled orange wedges. I wondered how I could top something as awesome as that birthday party for Dr Sketchy’s 8th birthday..

I think we did! A giant blackboard, blindfolding and spinning people till they fell over (sorry Harrison Chua!), cupcakes and cocktail giveaways, and a gorgeous guest of honor, Tanzer who serenaded and posed for us all afternoon.
Thank you to all who came to party, continue to share your sketches here and over at Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Melbourne

And now! We get ready to announce our next session on SUNDAY JULY 27th!

Be prepared to wiggle and squirm as Little Laa Laa the tap-dancing clown and side-show scallywag brings her curious talents to the Dr Sketchy stage.

Little Laa Laa is a red-headed ragamuffin who serves up a perplexing platter indeed. Blending acts of absurdity with feats of death-defying lunacy,  mind-boggling buffoonery and a wee little splash of salacious scalwaggery. You will squeal and squirm as this mischievous little mime
and her delightfully dark, vaudevillian antics play out in front of your very eyes.

Little Laa Laa is tap-dancing clown and side-show scallywag, Gemma Lark.  Born the bastard son of an alchemist and spent the first 10 years of her life surviving on a diet of split peas and cigarettes.  At the age of 14 she was married to a travelling salesman who kept her in the glove box of his 1967 Ford Falcon, though when she failed to produce him with an heir he sold her to a troupe of wandering minstrels for the price of four bags of oats and an arthritic goat. She considered this to be a reasonable exchange.By the age of 16 Lark had developed a nervous twitch, a whiskey dependency and an impressive collection of facial scars. By 20 she had lost touch with reality entirely and by 25 she was shamelessly lying in her biographies.

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”.

Don’t forget your sketch pad and pencils!
