Dr. Sketchy Melbourne will be rebirthed at beinArt Gallery
Theatre and the visual arts have been separated for too long. Dr Sketchy seeks to combine them, providing a space for people of all abilities to sit and draw the flourishing alternative performance art that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist.
Melbourne’s underground performance scene is an amazing source of inspiration for artists and is the well from which we draw our models, inviting them to our community where we celebrate the fun often left behind as adults in creativity and drawing.
We are losing our minds with excitement to be able to bring performance artist Fox Pflueger and the surreal creations of Sex Cake Monster to this resurrection of Dr Sketchy Melbourne!
THINGS ARE GOING TO GET WEIRD PEOPLE!
Art brings people together, regardless of age, colour, gender or sexual orientation. We believe in using Dr. Sketchy to bring together the different subcultures of a city to create a community. Artists and art hobbyists of all stripes can attend, performers of all types can pose. This bringing together of scenes and crossing of boundaries is essential to what we do.
Dr. Sketchy has been a boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and community in every city that runs one.
A wildly inclusive event – young and old, those who have drawn before, and those who have never picked up a pencil, this is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun.
Like Kurt Vonnegut said “practising an art, no matter how well or how badly is a way to make your soul grow”.
