In the Neighborhood

Saturday May 30 | 12 – 3 PM

In the Neighborhood with Yana Dimitrova

What makes a city a city? What do we need in our communities to call a place home? How can we design a space that is comfortable, empowering, exciting, easy to walk through, and a safe city for all? In this workshop participants will be lead through a series of activities to help them understand city systems and their meaning, while also experimenting with various found objects, paper, and materials. Participants will first design their own neighborhoods and will then collaborate to create literal bridges to connect them to make a city!

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.

Please note: If arriving in a group of 10 or more, please contact us the week prior to your visit by calling 718.956.1819.
