*As the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way schools and students are making and experiencing art, we are working with partners to develop workshops and discussions that introduce students to our exhibitions. Please contact Director of Education Douglas Paulson, at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can work with your students.
Sculpture Studio introduces teens to contemporary art-making concepts, techniques, media, and visual literacy. This intensive program cultivates direct partnerships with local Astoria/Long Island City middle and high schools to offer an immersive experience in school and at the Park each Spring and Fall. Past projects have included costumes, inflatables, photo shoots, sculpture making with found materials, drawing, and art games.
All of our education programs are free of charge.
Free education programs at Socrates Sculpture Park are made possible with generous support from Con Edison, JPB Foundation, The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation, Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and Robert Lehman Foundation, with additional support provided, in part, by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
