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.

Zupi Magazine comes to Dr. Sketchy's
We will be giving away copies of this artful magazine from Brazil at a class in the near future. Sure it will be in Portuguese, but you can look at the beautiful art work.
