Storytime: Weave with Color
June 21, 2023 | 10:00 am–11:00 am
Explore patterns in this week’s Storytime. We’ll look closely at I Went Away and Forgot You. A While Ago I Remembered. I Remembered Iʼd Forgotten You. I Was Dreaming, by artist Dana Awartani, read aloud Rainbow Weaver by Linda Elovitz Marshall, and we’ll practice arranging our own layered works of art.
Meet in the Museum Lobby.
Do this at home! Create a woven artwork with scrap fabric inspired by artist Anni Albers. 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.
