Art Cart

Show your artistic side using free drawing and craft supplies. Get inspired by the urban life, flowers, and monuments at Bryant Park. Speak with the Art Cart Host to receive materials and basic instruction.

The materials at the Art Cart are always changing, but professional-quality drawing pencils, brush pens, charcoal, blending stumps, erasers, and sketch boards are generally available.
