The Hirshhorn's Sculpture Garden is transformed into an outdoor creative space and laboratory for building.

For kids (and adults!) of all ages

Do you know a budding architect? Let’s build! Join Hirshhorn Kids and our friends from the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) Arts and Boolean Girl for a hands-on exploration of design and building. We’ll celebrate student artists from DCPS, and feature activities to get everyone building and dreaming. 

Find us on the Hirshhorn Plaza.  In the event of inclement weather this event may be modified. 

WHAT’S HAPPENING

  • Large Scale Map featuring artwork from DCPS student Build Day projects
  • Hands-on Maker Stations including sculpture design, LEGO building, and more! 
  • Circuitry workshops with Boolean Girl 
  • Tot Building Zone and Reading Nook

Want to explore architecture before or after this event? Try these activities in the classroom or at home!

Join us again next month! Maker Morning is the Hirshhorn’s free series held on a select Saturday of each month that invites kids of all ages to experience contemporary art through interactive hands-on making activities. Each month, we’ll introduce you to new activities and ideas, focused on this year’s theme of Be Transformed. Drop in and explore the Museum through engaging interactives, kids tours, and more. Activities take place throughout the Museum and Sculpture Garden.
