Hilltop summer class

Alvaro Arellano works on a handmade invitation to the closing ceremony for a summer program at Hilltop Gallery last month. The gallery is now preparing to offer art classes for kids on Saturdays during the school year.

The Saturday at the Gallery Art for Kids program is returning to Hilltop Gallery in Nogales, starting on Aug. 14.

The class will be held three Saturdays each month during the school year, the gallery said in an announcement. Children ages 5 to 12 are invited to attend.

Alma Piña will teach the classes, which will feature arts and crafts from around the world. Participants will use paint, markers and glue, “as well as imagination and creativity,” the gallery said.

A fee of $2 per class covers the cost of supplies.

The gallery said it will follow safety protocols by asking the children to wear masks and limiting class sizes. 

“Call to reserve a seat for the class each Saturday,” it said.

Hilltop Gallery is at 730 North Hill Top Dr. in Nogales. Phone: (520) 287-5515.
