Socrates Sculpture Park
Long Island City
Saturday Sculpture Workshops are offered to kids, ages 5-13, and their families. Workshops take place every Saturday from May 10-September 27; they are free and offered in the park's education area on a drop-in basis. Participants work with a different artist each Saturday, exploring innovative art mediums and a variety of subject matter.
Families will get their hands dirty and uncover the imagination of their friends! Based on the Surrealist game in which words and images are collectively assembled to create blind collaborative drawings, participants translate the words and ideas of their peers into 3-dimensional figures using clay. Then they will learn basic assemblage techniques and create an exquisite creature of their collective minds!

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.
