Dr. Sketchy’s: Animal Shapes (R18)

$15 / Friends of CoCA $10

Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School is a night of life drawing like no other. It’s an evening of drinking and drawing mixed with beastly burlesque.

Animal Shapes is being held at CoCA to celebrate the exhibition David Shrigley: Lose Your Mind. David Shrigley is a master of scathing one liners, crudely composed drawings and a creator of strange and amusing objects. Sketchy attendees will be welcome to view the exhibition before the drawing begins. It’ll certainly be a room with a zoo!

No art 'koalafications' needed to attend - all abilities are welcome. Creative critter dress ups are encouraged – feathered, furry, or fantastically ferocious!.

CoCA Create! Make a Robot Artist Children’s Workshop

Saturday 06 May / 1-3pm

Book at

Join CoCA Create! and be inspired by David Shrigley’s popular and amusing work, The Artist, to make a drawing robot!

With local artist Jacquelyn Greenbank, you'll use an array of everyday objects cleverly put together to create your own artistic automaton. Suitable for children aged 7-12.
