About Our Gallery
The Neutral Bay Public School Online Art Gallery is a space dedicated to the exhibition of student artwork. It provides a platform for our students to celebrate their visual arts practice and to receive positive recognition while learning at home.
We are committed to the exhibition of works by a cross-section of students, varying ages, year levels and diversity of needs.
Success looks different for every child.
