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.
Have an embarrassing stash of those thin plastic shopping bags in your apartment? Seem like a waste? Participants can turn them into a large fashionable tote bag of their own brilliant design. This simple cut and fuse process with an iron turns throwaways into a colorful, customized tote bag.
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.
