All Ages


Description: 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 make miniature toy boats and rafts from a variety of materials, and set them to sail. Learn about the history of New York City�s waterfronts, and experiment with how to make sculptures that float and move on their own with wind-up propellers, sails, and other techniques. Then they can test their boats in a kiddie pool before a group launch at near-by Socrates Sculpture Park Beach at Hallets Cove.
