Socrates Sculpture Park began offering free art-making workshops for neighborhood youth in 1990, and the program has since grown to serve approximately 8,000 children and teens annually. Our Arts Education Program offers free creative programming that is multi-faceted, accessible, and empowering, and ranges from topics such as from designing kites to building boats to creating sculptures.

The park has developed art-making programs for different age groups – Kids, Teens, and Adults – which each have unique structures and lessons. Visit these sections to learn more about our educational offerings and schedules.
