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. Recreate favorite memories with artist Linda Ganjian. Inspired by the art of Joseph Cornell, participants will use a variety of traditional and non-traditional art materials to make memory boxes. Kids will sculpt and paint, cut and glue, assemble, and embellish, and add glitter as they find ways to represent their summer stories in a neatly packaged container.

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.
