*The 2020 Socrateens cohort has transitioned to an online curriculum due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Socrateens is a year-long concentrated program for 10 teens to create experimental art at the Park. Selected from various Queens high schools, our Socrateens develop sculpture making, drawing, performance, and photo/video skills; and visit artist studios, museums, and galleries while working closely together to support and learn from each other. Participants receive a monthly artist’s stipend of $100.


Douglas Paulson is a Queens-based artist and educator who has done collaborative and participatory artworks in institutions and streets of Denmark, Germany, South Korea, Iceland, New York City, and other places near and far. He loves drawing, sewing, gardening, and hot gluing things. You can reach him at dp@socratessculpturepark.org.


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.
