Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School is a cabaret meets life drawing experience started by Molly Crabapple in Brooklyn 2005 that has now become a movement. There are now over 150 branches of Dr. Sketchy’s around the world. The Oklahoma City branch launched in January 2009. The drawing sessions are usually kicked off by a strip tease or performance from the model, feathers and pasties flying. There is a D.J. with great music and a cash bar. Drawing contests are a huge part of the fun and are different every class. One of the contests found the sketchers all required to draw on post-it notes for 10 minutes. The drawing prizes can be doing a shot with that night’s model, a cool art book or a hipster sketch pad. Any level of sketcher is welcome from expert to novice. Tickets are $9 in advance or $15 at the door.

One of My Favorite Things...

about 2009. We had a guest artist, the talented Muriel Fahrion, creator of Strawberry Shortcake and The Care Bears come sketch with us. To close out the class our model that night, the elegant Miss Savonne the Minx of Tulsa, dressed as a sexy Strawberry Shortcake. The room was packed, the sketching and the music were magical together and one of my favorite memories of Sketchy's maybe ever, was created.
