Dr. Sketchy's Anti Art-School Chch

With Constance Mayhem (Friday) and Aurora Storm (Saturday)

Dr. Sketchy's is a night of life drawing like no other – drinking and drawing with a side of burlesque. This August, we’ll be chilling upstairs next to the Great Hall at the Arts Centre as part of the fantastic Midwinter Carnival.


Join us for a Winter Thaw and Draw, a double-scoop serving of sketchy fun, with a session on each of the two nights of the Midwinter Carnival.


Warm up those sketching muscles cos it'll be love at frost sight when you meet our snow-belles! We are excited to be hosting a pair of Otautahi's finest neo-burlesque (n)ice-queens. The weather outside may be frightful, but these dames truly are delightful! With Constance Mayhem on Friday night and Aurora Storm on the Saturday, they’ll each serve up some winter whimsy to set your hearts ablaze.


Bring your own art supplies to document our midwinter muses – they’ll freeze into poses while the room heats up. All degrees of artistic ability welcome!


The sketchy girls – Tawdry Trainwreck, Mythical Haze and Rosie Reckless – will be arctic monkeying around and giving out prizes. ‘Snow joke – yule want to be part of this blizzard of babes!


Our sponsors are Brrrrr-illiant – Absolution Pierce, Tattoo and Gallery, Madam Butterfly's Vintage Style Boutique, Gordon Harris Art Supplies, Grymmstone and Treacle Emporium and C1 Espresso.


Don’t be a flake, flurry up and get yourself a ticket from Cosmic stores and online at Cosmic Ticketing. $15+booking fee per night. Very limited door sales available.
