SUNDAY - The World's Easiest Sketch Event - The Pivot Party

Welcome to the World's Easiest Sketch.  


Sunday August 28th, 2021

There's no reason not to come because - there's no work,  no walking,  no exertion with the Pivot Party!  

The only thing you do is draw and draw and draw.  The actual Pivot Party technique is based on an obscure version of the Hokey-Pokey intended for artists.


It could be the easiest spot in NYC to reach.  One block from crazy Times Square.  Everywhere you look there is something to draw in Bryant Park.  There's shade, there's buildings, trees, lawn, sculptures, park events, interesting people, plants, fellow sketchers and birds.

The Proper Pivot Technique

  • Find a comfortable spot
  • Plunk yourself down on said comfortable spot
  • Pick any direction at all - and start sketching
  • After about an hour (or when you finish your sketch) make a quarter turn clockwise and draw the next view. (see illustration for proper pivot procedure)
  • (Note:  For you rebels out there - counter clockwise is OK too)
  • Eat lunch together at noon in the park
  • Finish eating and sketch more, (following the morning techniques)


Where:  Bryant Park (located on Ave of the Americas between 42-40 Streets).  We’ll meet by the Fountain at the 41st St entrance.

When:  On SUNDAY we start at 10 AM and plan to sketch until 3 PM.  Sleeping late? Come anyway, we'll be there

Lunch:  Noon - Lunch at noon to be eaten in the park.  Stores nearby or Bringyourowni

How to get there:  Subway - B, D, F, M, or walk from Times Square or Grand Central

What to bring:  Art supplies, a blanket if you like the idea of a picnic, a stool if you like your own (the park has many available chairs we can use), a hat (in full sun sketching can be like sunbathing - be careful), something to drink and  a friend who likes to draw (or likes to watch as you draw).

If you can’t find us
