Dr. Sketchy's is what happens when cabaret meets art school. Starting in Brooklyn, in 2005, artists Molly Crabapple and A.V. Phibes created the Dr.Sketchy's Empire. Now with over 60 branches including new ones in Cape Town, South Africa and Bogota, Columbia. Dr. Sketchy's is on every continent except
Antarctica. Dr. Sketchy's is by far the most diverse, largest chain of drawing sessions in the world.
Aside from the standard structure of short poses to warm you up and then longer ones to give you more time to concentrate, this is definitely not your typical life drawing class. The model wears gorgeous burlesque outfits and slowly strips out of them! The model talks! You'll clap for them and hoot and holler! You'll tip them! You'll chat with your neighbor! There is no teacher to embarrass you when you don't produce enough! You get to drink and draw without getting in trouble! There are snacks! Now is the time to heal those art school wounds. Dr. Sketchy's will guide you.
