Reminder: In-person Hirshhorn Kids programs will be taking a nap throughout August.
Join us Saturday, July 29 between 10am-1pm for Maker Morning: Summer Celebration. Art Cart will resume its Saturday roll-outs on Sept. 2. Storytime will resume every Wednesday, starting Sept. 5.

How do you move your body? Join us for a reading of Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae, and a close-look at the artwork R.S.V.P. X. by Senga Nengudi. We’ll perform with our bodies and stretch the possibilities of our art-making materials. 

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! Play with texture using playdough and a few simple materials. 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.
