Between 2007 and 2014, 96% of all eligible Hilltop Artists students graduated from High School. In 2013-15, 100% graduated.
On average, an After-School student receives 211 hours of instruction.
Every year, Hilltop Artists engages over 80 volunteers who give over 500 hours to the organization. Our dedicated volunteers made everything happen at our events and in our offices.
Student-generated glass sales totaled $133,503 in 2014.
Team Production completed over 70 commissions of varying size, quantity, and style during our 2013-14 Fiscal Year.
Hilltop Artists students create their glass-blown art with molten glass that has been heated in the furnace to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Our students learn to respect safety precautions as they work as a team using very hot materials.
Our annual fundraiser is the Better Futures Luncheon. Attendees hear from our students about the impact of Hilltop Artists on their lives, have first access to unique glass items, and have an opportunity to connect young people to better futures through their support.

Created by the cohort of French students who visited Tacoma in spring of 2018.
