About Dr Sketchy’s Los Angeles

Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art school is the world’s premier alt.drawing movement. Founded in 2005 in a dive bar in Brooklyn by art school dropout Molly Crabapple, Dr. Sketchy’s has now spread to over 100 cities around the world.

Dr. Sketchy’s was brought to Los Angeles in 2006 by Kat Bardot,  owner of Bone Structure LA. Over the next ten years, the branch changed hands from Kat to Bob Self to Lili VonSchtupp. In May 2016, the branch was taken over by Purple Owl Productions owner and variety performer, Bella Luna, who serves as the current Headmistress.

Dr. Sketchy’s Los Angeles allows artists of all levels to draw glamorous underground performers in an atmosphere of boozy conviviality. Our models are burlesque dancers, variety artists, exhibitionists, cosplay kings and queens ~ we have something for everyone! Join us for art, contests, performances, music, & mayhem.
