A group of children and their guardians sit on the floor of a gallery in the Put It This Way Exhibition, directly in front of Kiyan William's Meditation on the Making of America. An Educator holds out an object for kids and their guardians to investigate.

Mix it up at this week’s Storytime exploring color mixing. We’ll look closely at Mark Bradford’s Pickett’s Charge, read the story Mouse Paint by Ellen Walsh, and play with colorful, transparent materials to mix our own colors.

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! Explore color through your senses! Only a small amount of set-up is required for prolonged play. Instructions here.

Join Hirshhorn Kids on Wednesdays for a one-of-a-kind storytime experience! Each week offers a fun and fresh theme for our youngest artists and their adults. Get a fun and hands-on introduction to a new artwork each week, and participate in a joyful read-aloud filled with music, stories, and movement. Then, stay and play while your little artist creates. No reservations or tickets required. 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. For a group of ten or more, please contact mcgettigant@si.edu to reserve a program in advance.
