Get inspired by the colors of nature at this week’s Art Cart. Join us and educators from the Smithsonian’s National Museum Natural History to try your hand at mixing and matching colors with playful color theory. Young artists will look closely at Alma Thomas’s paintings in Put It This Way, explore nature specimen from Natural History’s collection, and choose their own shades to make their own multicolored artworks.

Find the Art Cart on the Third Level and pick up your colorful materials.

Do this at home! Look outside your window and get inspired by the colors and patterns of nature! Instructions here.

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.
