2013-14 Artist in Residence at Hillside

Beginning in December 2013, the PTO sponsored an art experience led by Anne Francey from Saratoga. As our Artist in Residence, Ms. Francey visited Hillside and worked with the all of the students on a "1001 Faces Portrait Project." To learn more about the artist Anne Francey and the 1001 Faces Project go to and click on public murals.

Please visit the Hillside foyer with your child so he or she can show you his or her contribution to this inspiring work of art. Hillside's 1000 faces portrait project is vibrant, full of joy and energy and a wonderful way to commemorate the school's 50 year anniversary.
