Hilltop Artists

Launched in 1994 with 20 participants, Hilltop Artists is a nonprofit that uses glass arts to connect over 650 students a year to promising futures.  The nonprofit offers its programs at studios in area public schools, where students can participate free-of-charge in glass arts such as fusion, mosaics, flameworking, and glassblowing.  To help generate revenues for its programs, the nonprofit sells some of its participants’ work at local events and through its on-line store.  In 2014, such sales generated over $133,500.
