2020 has been a challenging year for students and teachers alike!

However, with the enduring support of the North Sydney Arts and Culture Program, we are, once again, able to showcase our beautiful student’s works from the 1st of October  – 26th  of October 2020 at the InTransit Art Space in North Sydney Council Chambers 200 Miller street North Sydney.

Art Box Workshops 2020 student exhibition is a combination of artworks created during our studio and online art classes.
We worked hard to make sure that our students were not going to miss out on art experiences and, still following our curriculum, we produced a series of online classes for our students. This exhibition showcases both our studio classes and online classes.
