Children participating in hands on activity

Express yourself and all the ways you are wonderful! Join us for a reading of Aaron Slater Illustrator by Andrea Beaty, and a close-look at the collage Annette by Niki de Saint Phallle. We’ll practice expressing what makes us unique and create self-portraits (artworks of ourselves) that celebrate who we are!

Meet in the Museum Lobby on Level One.

Do this at home! Assemble a colorful self-portrait inspired by Niki de Saint Phalle’s Pink Lady. Use your favorite art materials and objects to show the colors, shapes, textures, and lines that represent you! Instructions here.

A mixed media portrait featuring greens, yellows and blues.


Join Hirshhorn Kids on Wednesdays for a one-of-a-kind Storytime experience!

Each week offers a fun and fresh theme for kids (from birth to age 8) and their caregivers. We encourage all to get hands-on with our art maker projects inspired by the Hirshhorn’s collection, plus enjoy read-alouds filled with music, tales, and tons of movement.

Storytime is always free, no reservations or tickets required.

Museum doors will open at 10am, where our Hirshhorn Kids staff will happily greet you in the Lobby and share the day’s program. Feel free to play in the Lobby while others get settled—the Storytime group will leave for the galleries at 10:15am.

Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby and on the Lower Level. If there are access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive (e.g., ASL interpretation), please contact hmsgeducation@si.edu . 1-2 weeks advance notice is recommended but not required.
