Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School!

Since 2005, Dr Sketchy’s has been throwing events that let artists draw glamorous underground performers in an atmosphere of cheeky conviviality.

Founded by Molly Crabapple (artist, activist, model and art school dropout) in the back of a New York dive bar, Dr. Sketchy’s has spread to over a hundred cities in the world, and held court in venues from Times Square to the Museum of Modern Art.

And since November 2017, Dr. Sketchy’s York pops up every month at Parliament Arts at 116 E King Street in historic downtown York, PA! (Now First Saturdays at 8pm!)

BYO art supplies, grab a tasty beverage a few steps away at Collusion Tapworks or the Courtyard Cantina, and join a gaggle of good-natured artists, weirdos, and top-notch burlesque artists in gorgeous costumes for a delightful evening of art, music, and creative camaraderie!
