Young elementary, Tween
Join Cheryl Blaylock from Trees NY to collect pieces of branches and seeds around Socrates, build a mini tree, and decorate it with statements of potential for ourselves and the world we live in. SacredWaters will help participants create seed balls with native plants while learning about what plants do for us, our city, and our world.
Saturday Sculpture Workshops are offered to kids, ages 5-13, and their families. Workshops take place every Saturday from May 9 – September 26; 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.

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.
