"Teens can make whatever they want. They've taken T-shirts and recycled and restyled them. They've done chocolate painting and screen-printed totes," Dougherty said.
"Sometimes there will be groups of friends. It's fun and they also get to meet kids from other schools," she said.
The High has a group of students called the Teen Team that helps to facilitate Open Studio and other teen activities at the museum.
"The Teen Team consists of high school juniors and seniors. They do an application process in the spring. They're here eight weeks in the summer. They are summer employees, and they get paid," Dougherty said.
In addition to the Open Studio sessions for high school students, the High launched a seven-week summer arts camp program for children ages 6-11 that runs until Aug. 5.
The High has family-friendly activities nearly every day. Check out its website at www.high.org for all your options.
