Colorful Kaleidoscope
Have you ever seen a rainbow? Maybe you’ve noticed one refracted through a glass prism or while playing in a sprinkler on a sunny day. This project will give you the power to make your own rainbow! Create

Colorful Coffee Filter
Transform a flat coffee filter into a sculptural work of art inspired by artist Sam Gilliam. All you need is a coffee filter, some markers, and a spray bottle or cup of water. Create.

Maker Morning is the Hirshhorn’s free series held on select Saturdays 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 Breaking Boundaries. Drop in and explore the Museum through engaging interactives, kids tours, and more. Activities take place throughout the Museum and Sculpture Garden

Please note for next month: Hirshhorn Kids programs take a break in August, but you don’t have to! Pick up one of our kid-friendly exhibition self-guides at the Front Desk or explore our digital Kids Guide to the Outside in the Sculpture Garden.
