The High Line After School Artist-Scientists program combines a series of visits to the High Line with hands-on exploration, art-making, and scientific experiments in the classroom. Encouraged to be both artists and scientists, students use their favorite subject and talents while exploring harder concepts in a new way. They practice critical-thinking and research skills by observing their surroundings, interpreting primary sources, and making sketches and observations. Most importantly, they have fun while forming a deep, lasting relationship with the park and with each other. This after-school program is possible through the support of New York City Council Member Corey Johnson, of the 3rd Council District.
