About Us

Dr Sketchy was founded in 2005 by artist, author and former artists model Molly Crabapple.  It's a little Brooklyn event that has become a movement. Now taking place in 150 cities (and counting) around the world. See more of our Dr Sketchy creator Molly Crabapple at www.mollycrabapple.com



Opening it's doors in 2007 Dr. Sketchy London is organised by Clare Marie and hosted by Dr. Sketchy's evil headmaster Dusty Limits.


We want life drawing to be more than just nude models and serious sketching.  So we've scoured this great city to find beautiful burlesque performers, bizarre circus acts, and rippling hunks of man-flesh. Then we let them loose on stage to release the artist in you!

In between each round of sketching our larger-than-life models you get a chance to grab a drink get comfortable and take in some of the finest burlesque, comedy, music, poetry and quirky cabaret performances the big smoke has to offer.  


Dr Sketchy isn't about being an amazing artist, as long as you can put pencil to paper and move it around that's good enough for us and you never know you might just unleash that artist inside.


It's what art classes would be if the class was let loose in the Moulin Rouge.



Do I need to bring materials?

Only if you want to.  We provide loose sheets of A3 and A4 paper as well as pencils, pens and crayons.  

I am unable to attend the class I booked. Can I reschedule or get a refund?

Classes are non-refundable, however, we can transfer your ticket to another class.

Please get in contact to let us know you are unable to attend and we’ll happily transfer your ticket. 

Alternatively if you’re unable to attend and would like to send someone in your place, that is absolutely fine.
