Welcome to the surreal world of Dr Sketchy, in particular the local branches of a global “Anti-Art School” network originating in New York and described as “fringe performance” – a crossover between pop culture, cabaret, burlesque and drawing classes. Doctor, they like your medicine, as the song goes. New Zealand’s branches in Auckland, Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch are flourishing with inventive, character-driven themes, as a night with the Auckland crew illustrates, in every sense.
Combining performance and visual art, there are Dr Sketchy events in 50 countries. In New Zealand there are already regular running events in Wellington, Christchurch, Auckland and Nelson and more!!

Remember candy floss? So sugary sweet it made your teeth hurt & yet your childish brain demanded more, more, MORE until your brain collapsed into a sugar induced coma. I also like to call it kiddy crack.
Well, this Monday you can brush sticky wing tips (that wasn’t meant to sound as filthy as it came out) with the debauched Candy Floss Fairies of the K Road Christmas Carnival. Kawaii!! Squeep!
MC & candy cane wielder Lilly Loca is back with more sass & witty filth. Although this time she promises not to jizz on your face. Maybe just sprinkle a little fairy dust…
Bring your favourite tools: pens, paper, pencils, crayons, glue, cameras and/or finger paint. Dr. Sketchy is open to anyone, regardless of creed, colour and artistic style.
