Two adults and a child interact with an educator at the art cart, placed in the activity section of the Put it This Way exhibit.

What colors do you see when you walk outside? Join us at this week’s Storytime for a reading of Ablaze with Color by Jeanne Walker Harvey, and a close-look at the artwork Earth Sermon—Beauty, Love and Peace by Alma Thomas. We’ll play with colors and patterns and collaboratively create our own colorful works of art. 

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! Explore color through your senses! Sensory bins are wonderfully versatile for different ages. Check out the Stock Your Studio link below to make your own rainbow rice. 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. 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.
