Socrates Sculpture Park
Long Island City
Pre-school & younger, Young elementary, Tween
These workshops for kids and their families are free and offered in the Park's education area on a drop-in basis. Participants work with a different artist each week, exploring innovative art mediums and a variety of subject matter. Kids can join artist Elissa Goldstone and show the world that they're a Socrates All-Star, and hit one out of the Park. Using a variety of decorations and paint, kids and families will make their own trophies, medals, and championship rings to award themselves for being Major League material.
Address: 32-01 Vernon Blvd. Long Island City, NY 11106
Founded in 1986, Socrates Sculpture Park is the only site in the New York Metropolitan area specifically dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations in a unique outdoor environment that encourages strong interaction between artists, artworks and the public. The park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment.
