Children participating in hands on activities on the plaza

Join us as we imagine and re-enact the journey of a little clam. We’ll look at the sculpture Clamdigger by Willem deKooning and read the book Necks Out for Adventure by Timothy Basil Ering. Following the story, we’ll create our own visual stories.

An ASL interpreter can be requested for this program. Please email us at least two weeks in advance at hsmg_education@si.edu.

STORYTIME explores contemporary art through stories and movement. Museum staff will read aloud a book, introduce children to an artist in the collection, and lead a hands-on activity. Nursing moms welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn lobby. Groups of 10 or more should contact mcgettigant@si.edu to reserve a program in advance. Please note: snacks are not allowed inside the Museum, but you may eat outside on our Plaza before or after the program.
