How do you tell stories? Artists often use their materials to help tell stories. Join us to explore Mark Bradford’s Pickett’s Charge and to tell your own stories with art. 

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

Art Cart is taking a winter pause. Our final 2023 outing is our program on Saturday, Dec 16 from 10 am1 pm. Bookmark our Kids webpage or sign-up for our free biweekly Kids e-news to be first to know what we’ll roll out in the new year.

Do this at home! Reveal the layers within a story that matters to you with Mark Bradford. Instructions here.

A multi layered newspaper collage is topped by a photo of the outside of a restaurant. Pieces of newspaper have been stripped away, revealing the layers underneath.


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 Saturday between 10 am and 1 pm.  

Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby. If there are access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive (e.g., ASL interpretation, live captioning, etc.), please contact hmsgeducation@si.edu. 1-2 week’s advance notice is recommended but not required.
