Students may choose between glassblowing, flame-working (bead-making) or glass fusion. These sessions fill up fast and there is always a waiting list. You will be notified by email or by phone of your student’s placement in the program. We will also add you to our parent email list so we can keep you up to date on future events and program enrollment.

Your student may choose one session. Please indicate first and second choice on the application form.
FREE lunch will be served in the cafeteria Monday-Thursday. (Time TBD)
The last day of each session is a celebration of student work. Parents are encouraged to attend!
The materials fee for each 2-week session is $100. Please see application for payment instructions.
This fee will be waived if your student is eligible for free or reduced lunches at school, or may be reduced or waived with request and approval from Hilltop Artists. Serving students is always our goal!

Through this program we try to work very closely with students and parents. We want everyone to understand that even with Hilltop Artists’ emphasis on safety there is a risk involved when working with molten glass. There is also an expectation that the students will be prompt and reliable, as others depend on them to be part of the team. We understand that summer is a busy time, but we ask that your student commit to the entire two week session.

We hope that you are excited to have your son/daughter participate in the adventure of the Hilltop Artists Glass Arts program. It is a great summer activity! Please complete the attached enrollment form as soon as possible.

Hope to see you this summer!
