Creepy, Sexy, Dark n' Sultry with a hint of classic...

The entire year of 2014,  Dr Sketchy Akron  will be creating drawing events themed around the original Grimm Brothers Fairy Tales, and we need your art to document this year long endeavor!!

Starting in January of 2015 Dr. Sketchy will be taking the artwork created by you Art Monkeys and assembling a Fairy Tale themed Art Show that will travel around to various galleries and venues in the greater Akron area!!

To be considered to be entered into the show, the pieces that you create must simply have it's origin at a Dr. Sketchy Akron Grimm Fairy Tale themed event and be "gallery ready", that's it!

HOW IT WORKS:  You come to Dr. Sketchy, have a few beverages, play a few games, draw some gorgeous models, take home your sketches, frame them, turn them into masterworks, or use them as a launching point for sculptures, collages, prints, whatever your heart desires! Then simply submit the piece or pieces to "Dr' Bill, tell all your friends and family and come out to celebrate the show!! 

  Keep posted for actual submission dates n' deadlines as well as the show schedule!!
