Whatever Floats Your Boat

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.

August 30 from 12 – 3 PM: Whatever Floats Your Boat with Lillian Gerson
in collaboration with Astoria Boaters and Long Island City Community Boathouse

We’ll make miniature toy boats and rafts from a variety of materials and set them to sail. While we learn about the history of New York City’s waterfronts, we will experiment with how to make our own sculptures float and move on their own with wind-up propellers, sails, and other techniques. We’ll test our boats in a kiddie pool before a group launch at near-by Socrates Sculpture Park Beach at Hallets Cove.

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.
