Geological Pets

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.

May 16 from 12 – 3 PM: Geological Pets with Aiysha Mayfield

Join us as we explore the geological topography of Socrates Sculpture Park and transform rock samples into awesome Pet Rocks. Did you know that New York City and some of the strips of land along the East River are giant rock deposits from a glacier? Did you know you could tell the difference between rocks by identifying what types of minerals they contain? You’ll learn more cool facts like these while gaining a new appreciation for the unique land formation of Socrates Sculpture Park. Best of all you get to design and take home your very own Geological Pet!

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.
