Socrates Sculpture Park
Long Island City
Young elementary, Tween
Collaborate with the artists of the Free Style Arts Association to create artistic pathways over the rolling fields of Socrates, similar to the style of medieval meditation mazes. Using bundles of colored rope, participants will be able to create their own unique patterns, link to others, and then walk the maze in reflection.
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.
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.
