SOHO — Kids can climb a graffiti-covered wall and learn to make comic books at a pop-up indoor park in SoHo.

The P.S. 3 ArtPark, sponsored by P.S. 3's PTA and curated by ArtPod's Laurie De Chiara, launched on Saturday at 350 West Broadway and runs daily through March 30.

The free installation features a maze of art projects for kids and adults to explore, including the climbing wall, a sound-emitting mobile and a chance to mix "color spectrum drinks."

The park will close with a full day of workshops this Sunday, including how to dance in a flash mob and how to make puppets and fairy homes.

P.S. 3 is holding an art auction fundraiser in conjunction with ArtPark, to raise money for the school's art and music programs, teaching assistants, recess aides and other school amenities.

The artwork available for bidding is on display at ArtPark, as well as online.

P.S. 3 ArtPark, 350 West Broadway, is open daily from noon to 6 p.m. through March 30.
