When many artists think “life drawing,” they think of sterile rooms, bad lighting, and bored, silent, models with nary a hint of personality. Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is here to change all that.

Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is the little New York art event that became a movement. Started in 2005 by artist Molly Crabapple, the concept is simple. Artist’s draw glamorous burlesque dancers, compete in contests, and win wacky prizes. From its humble Brooklyn beginnings, Dr. Sketchy’s now has over 100 branches around the globe, including Los Angeles, London, Rome, Tokyo, and Melbourne.

Ana Seethe is now bringing Dr. Sketchy’s to the new location of Softy’s Clubhouse, Newcastle. The monthly sessions will feature burlesque babes, roller derby girls, drag queens and fetish models, along with contests, prizes and alcohol galore.

Since its inception in 2005, Dr. Sketchy’s has received coverage from the likes of The LA Times, The Washington Post, BBC Radio, NPR, The Village Voice, WNBC, Time Out London, and The New York Times. Dr. Sketchy’s happens at the fabulous Softy’s Clubhouse Newcastle hosted by burlesque performer, and producer Ana Seethe.

Ana Seethe is the ‘Headmistress’ of the newly granted Newcastle Branch of Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. This is a great opportunity to dust of your old art class pencils, watercolours, paints, charcoal and easels for a fun, adults only life drawing activity. Then be entertained with a burlesque performance at the end of the session. You don’t even need to be an artist or even participate in the drawing aspect. That’s the beauty of Anti-Art Classes!

Doors open 3pm for a 3:30pm start. The class closes with a performance at 5:45pm. Limited tickets available.
