Art Without Walls
Co-presented by the Felipe de Neve Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library, this program invites kids ages 5 and up, teens, and grown-ups to create art inspired by social justice issues, children’s literature, and Hammer exhibitions. This program is bilingual in Spanish and English.
Families explore art and create together in lively workshops led by artists. These drop-in programs are designed for ages 5 and up.
Families explore Hammer exhibitions through thematic, fun-to-play games. This drop-in program is designed for kids ages 7 and up and their grown-ups.
Our free annual family festival fills the museum with art, music, performances, and more. Family Day: Make in L.A. will take place on August 22, 2020.
