life drawing with a cabaret twist!

Dr Sketchy London invites you to grab a pencil, grab a drink, and grab a seat for the most fun figure-drawing class/party in town, hosted by our very own Evil Headmaster, multi award-winning cabaret artist Dusty Limits, and with models drawn from the world of burlesque and cabaret, including our in-house supermodel, Sebastian 'Snuggles' Angelique. 


Our philosophy is simple: our classes are to art what karaoke is to singing. We reward boldness, imagination and whimsy. You don't need any previous drawing experience to have a brilliant time, and if you think 'oh no, I can't draw', come join us anyway. We'll dispel your inner critic and take you back to when you drew just for fun. We can all make art. 

It's a gorgeous way to spend a couple of hours, get your creative juices flowing, and remind yourself just how amazing you can be. And at the end of it, you'll have given yourself at least one actual work of art that you can call your own, (plus some new friends, and probably a hangover).

We look forward to welcoming you to Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School.

(* Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.)

Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School was founded by world-renowned artist Molly Crabapple in 2005 in New York. She had a vision of a new kind of life-drawing class, and it's now spread around the globe in over 100 locations. It's the world's premier alt.drawing movement. The London chapter of Dr Sketchy has been around for over a decade and throughout lockdown we've done 29 shows and counting. Can't go out? Stay in and draw!
