What are you going to do to celebrate the holidays this year? We have a great suggestion! You can head to our workshops for a fantastic hands-on art project. We’re combining the screen printing technique of Andy Warhol with some Jasper Johns numbers to make our very own printing factory in the Greene Family Education Center.


Stop by anytime between 1 and 4 p.m. December 26 through January 2 (please note that the Museum is closed January 1) to join us in exploring Picasso to Warhol.  The activity is free with Museum admission and free for members


As an added bonus, we’ll be celebrating Matisse’s birthday on December 31st. Kids are free at the High Saturday, December 31, and Monday January 2. Kids 17 and under free with paying adult; walk-up only.


Happy Holidays,




Day After Turkey Success! December 9, 2011

We had so much fun on the Day After Thanksgiving here at the High! There was live music, drawing, games, and of course fantastic art making activities! If you missed the day, check out the photos below. Or you can come to our Second Sunday Funday this weekend. On December 11, from 1 to 4 p.m. we’ll be making art, going on a scavenger hunt in the galleries, and you’ll even have the chance to meet the artist Grainger McKoy.

See you Sunday,



The band Already Taken rocked the Atrium. They're all under 16 years of age!














We had messy fun while making Jackson Pollock inspired drip paintings.














Here you can see the larger Pollock inspired canvases that we worked on outside. Pretty cool if you ask me.
