dr sketchy’s anti art school

The divine Gypsy Wood, straight from the Carnival of Unearthy Delights at the Adelaide Fringe is now back in the one real city Australia has, Sydney. She’s back there for the opening of Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School next Tuesday.


Dr Sketchy’s is what happens when cabaret meets art school.It was the little Brooklyn (USA) event that became a movement. Started by artists Molly Crabapple and A.V Phibes.

It is now a 16 country community, with Dr Sketchy’s opening somewhere in the world every week. We have been selected to operate the Sydney and Brisbane Dr Sketchy’s! We have secured the gorgeous ArtHouse hotel in Sydney and burlesque, vaudeville, rockabilly, pin-up and circus artists to pose for us.

At our Dr Sketchy events, you will be able to enjoy a drink,draw / paint, or just sit back and enjoy the live Burlesque entertainment. Our cover charge will be very reasonable, and we will have membership discounts available soon after launch.
