The NGA now has an ongoing partnership with the Canberra branch of Dr Sketchy's. Established in 2005 Dr Sketchy's has branches in over a hundred cities around the globe, from Akron to Zagreb. Combining glamorous models, performance and drawing in a fun, welcoming atmosphere, Dr Sketchy's is the perfect place to get your fill of life-drawing.
