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. Welcome to the Mexican tradition of pi�atas. Pi�atas are brightly colored papier-mache sculptures, filled with treats and bashed open during festive events. Participants will learn different techniques on how to decorate the papier-mache and plaster skin of pi�atas that will be filled and delightfully smashed.

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.
