Use colors, lines, and shapes to represent yourself! Lean into layers, and experiment with form inspired by artist Pablo Picasso. Explore his work, compare his portrait to other artworks that represent people in Revolutions: Art from the Hirshhorn Collection, 1860–1960, and make your own 2D portraits. 

Find the Art Cart on the Second Level to pick up your portrait materials. 


Do this at home! Transform a rock into a colorful work of art inspired by Pablo Picasso’s vibrant and expressive portraits. Instructions here.

ABOUT THE ART CART

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.
