Preview Dr. Sketchy's Twin Cities

More Info at:

Where art class meets cabaret, Dr. Sketchy's will cure you of every boring art class you've ever been to.

The common view on life-drawing classes involves a silent room, a bored model, and no liquor in sight. From the mind of New York artist and burlesque performer Molly Crabapple comes Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, the cabaret life drawing party that has taken the hearts of hipsters from New York to Melbourne. A combination of performance, life-drawing sessions, amazingly complex costumes, and all the booze in town, Dr. Sketchy’s has become THE art event for all artist and awesome hipsters to attend. Of course we had no choice but to start our very own – Dr. Sketchy’s Twin Cities!

At any Dr. Sketchy's event you can grab a chair, a drink, and enjoy an eyeful of intriguingly clad and talented performance artists. We plan on getting only the hippest hosts and the coolest models with the weirdest careers-- burlesque girls, drag kings, roller derby girls, bodybuilders and sideshow freaks. Naturally as music runs hand in hand with inspiration, we’ll have good tunes. Dr. Sketchy’s also features irreverent drawing contests, where the lucky winner can win such prizes as booze or fancy trinkets from local retailers.

All scribblers, doodlers, cartoonists and Toulouse Lautrec wannabes are welcome. Come armed with sketchpads; dry drawing materials or simply a good sense of humor. Thankfully talent is not a pre requisite. In fact you can just stick to the drinking and enjoy the show if that’s your skill set. If Dr. Sketchy's doesn't cure what ails you, at least the booze will. As always, booze = 21 and up.

Fourth Sundays in the afternoon at the 331 Club, 331 13th Ave NE Minneapolis.
Admission $10. Registration recommended.
