Virtual Community

With schools shut down, we know this is a difficult time.

Even though we can’t create together IRL, we can build on the strength and trust of our community and hold virtual space to celebrate and connect.

Find out what you can expect from our virtual community by scrolling down. We’re excited to be your resource for education, well being, and creativity.

You can help our students and staff, and make sure that once schools open again, Hilltop Artists is here for our community.
