A round green object at the foreground projects light through a round piece of wood with a colored gel filter at its center.

Play with light and shadow during the darkest month of the year! Young artists will look closely at Carlotta Corpron’s photographs in Put It This Way, create their own shadows and experiment with opaque, translucent, and transparent materials. 

Find the Art Cart in the Third Level Lerner Room to experiment with shadows.

Do this at home! Brighten up the darkness with this colorful and playful Mini Art Lesson exploring light. Discover the science of light, shadows, and reflections through artful play. Create.

A snowflake-like light composed of inward facing triangles creating a square is projected onto a white wall beyond.


Want to make art inspired by your favorite Hirshhorn works on view? The Art Cart offers young artists a hands-on maker experience during their visit to the Hirshhorn. Each week’s Art Cart offers a fresh and fun theme featuring an artwork on view, an artmaking activity to do at the Museum, and kids projects to extend the fun at home! 

The Art Cart is free; no registration required. Drop in any Thursday between 10am-12pm. 

Stroller Parking is available in the Lobby and the Lower Level.
