Hilltop Artists’ March Gallery Hours – Help send a student to Biot, France!
March 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for a special gallery hours event to kick off our 2018 Student Ambassador Program! This summer a Hilltop Artists student will travel to Biot, France for 3 weeks to study with master glassblower Antoine Pierini. In return, we will host a glassblowing student from Biot during our Summer Glass Arts Program.
One of our senior students, Peter, has been chosen as the 2018 Biot Ambassador. He started as a Hilltop Artists student in 7th grade at Jason Lee, and later joined our After School and Team Production programs. Peter is looking forward to new experiences and the opportunity to expand his skills as a glassblower while studying with Antoine.
Proceeds from the sale of special Biot Floats (made by Peter!) will help fund this one-in-a-lifetime experience. If you don’t want to shop, please join for some french-themed treats (croissants, anyone?) and live demos by students in the hot shop
Once per month, we open up the Hilltop Artists gallery for public shopping hours. Come check out our beautiful student-made glass art! We have jewelry, vases, fused glass….you never know what unique treasure you might find as student-made art is always one-of-a-kind. The proceeds from our glass sales go straight back into our programs and help us provide tuition-free glass arts instruction for 650 students each year.
Hilltop Artists connects young people from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds to better futures. Through glass arts instruction and related arts training we promote the discovery of creativity and self-expression, increased academic and social skills, and youth leadership.
