Had it not been for the easels, last week's New York Academy of Art Hamptons Drawing Party Presented By Gucci could have been quite the scandal!

Held at the divine Sag Harbor home of interior designer Steven Gambrel and his partner James Anderson, the beloved annual event welcomed guests to try their hand at figure drawing, with art models posed about the lawn. 

With contemporary artists Will Cotton and Reisha Perlmutter on the scene to offer tips, everyone from Brooke Shields, Donna Karan and Candace Bushnell to Eileen Guggenheim, Nicole Miller and Ali Wentworth gave sketching a go.

Care for an inside look at the artsy soirée?
