Online Family Program: Winter Adventure with the Snow Maiden

Embark on a magical winter adventure from the comfort of your own home! Join Natasha Mirny, performer and teaching artist, for an immersive storytelling experience that invites children to become part of the story through movement, music, and active participation.

This interactive story brings to life the enchanting tale of the Snow Maiden and Grandfather Frost, magical characters from Russian folklore, while exploring treasures from Hillwood’s art collection, including the magnificent painting, A Boyar Wedding Feast.  

Have a scarf, bandana, or other piece of material, and a paper or plastic cup nearby as props to participate in the story.

Suggested for children ages eight and under with their grownups, but all ages are welcome.  

This family program is presented live online via Zoom. A link will be emailed to registered participants prior to the program. To get started, please download Zoom on your chosen device and explore the Frequently Asked Questions


Hillwood’s youth and family programs are supported by a grant from the Mary and Daniel Loughran Foundation. This project was supported by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. All exhibitions and programs are funded in part by the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts through the National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs program.
