Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, a festive figure-drawing jam session, now has over 100 branches around the world. Artist Molly Crabapple founded it in 2005 in a "dive bar in Brooklyn."
From illegal flashmobs to the Museum of Modern Art, Dr. Sketchy's has brought artists a rule-breaking cocktail of dames, drinking and drawing. Whether you're an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchy's is the perfect place to get your fill of life-drawing."
I am pleased to announce that there is now a hub for all Dr. Sketchy's branches worldwide. 100+ branches. 1 web site. Woo! Dr. Sketchy's presents amazing figure-drawing spectacles in 16 countries on five continents... all unified through the Anti-Art School's brand-spanking-new global web site. Find the branch nearest you, or learn how to start your own local branch. Don't make excuses... make art!
The only two continents without a Dr. Sketchy branch are Africa and Antarctica. If you live there, you are invited to start a branch!
