A birds eye view of four children, gathered together in a circle creating felt artwork by attaching small organic shaped felt pieces to larger, square bases.

Mix it up at this week’s Storytime exploring color mixing. We’ll look closely at the painting Field For Skyes by Joan Mitchell, 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! Instructions here

Three white pieces of paper have been laid out over newspaper. Each contain a color scale consisting of six horizontal lines of color, experimenting with mixing yellow, red and blue paint.


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. An ASL Interpreter may be requested for this program; two weeks advance notice is appreciated. 

At this time, we cannot accommodate groups of 10 or larger at Storytime. Groups are encouraged to participate in Art Cart  or Maker Morning. Please contact HMSGeducation@si.edu in advance with your group information.
