Socrates x Noguchi Field Guide
May  – October 2024
Select Saturdays | 11am – 1pm

Connect with nature through a series of experimental, organic art-making workshops led by Noguchi Educators at Socrates Sculpture Park. Engage in written reflection, group conversation, and observational drawing to consider how we are connected to each other and the ways that art, the living environment, and community building are intertwined.

Workshops are free to attend and open to all ages. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  All participants will be given a free pass to visit The Noguchi Museum (located across the street from the Park at 9-01 33rd Rd, Queens, NY 11106) after the program.

Pre-registration is recommended, with a limited number of walk-up spots available.
