Saturday, July 6, 2013 - 10:00am to 12:00pm



Every Saturday in July and August (except August 30) reuse and re-imagine during Arty Hours! Kids and their caregivers are invited to create sculptures that turn, move, and roll inspired by site-specific works from Archeo, a High Line Art group exhibition. Transform everyday objects into masterpieces you can take home.

At each Arty Hour, young builders can create one-of-a-kind vehicles, forts, structures, and machines with the High Line Children’s Workyard Kit, a crate of kid-friendly planks, nuts, bolts, and other custom materials by industrial designer Cas Holman.
