Use your imagination to travel to the ocean with the Hirshhorn and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History at this week’s Storytime. Young artists will look closely at Pendour by Barbara Hepworth, read Over in the Ocean: In a Coral Reef, by Marianne Berkes, and use their imaginations to build a water-inspired world!  

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! Imagine a faraway world and paint it with layers of watercolor. 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. For a group of ten or more, please contact mcgettigant@si.edu to reserve a program in advance.
