About the project
Art on the Hill is the art service currently under the auspices of Wyong Neighbourhood Centre Inc.
Art on the Hill follows an ethos of providing skills and professional development opportunities to the regions emerging artists and young people, through mentoring, employment, training and education.
Art on the Hill was officially launched in November 2012, with the support of Darren Webber (NSW State Government local member), Wyong Shire Council, Gosford City Council and ArtsNSW.
The aim of Art on the Hill is to implement a diverse range of projects, workshops, forums, and programs which assist with the progression and sustainability of an artist’s and young person’s career prospects affiliated with the creative industries.
A new component which will be introduced to Art on the Hill, will be project development initiatives connected to children 2 to 5 years of age. Watch this space for further updates or visit Art on the Hill’s Facebook page.

In support of Art on the Hill’s on-ground initiatives, we received funds through Gosford City Council, The Benevolent Society, and formed a strong partnership with Wyong TAFE (outreach). In association with these funds and partnerships, we implemented a series of projects, including the employment of five artists to facilitate these projects. These include:
RSPCA Mural Project
This project has employed experienced and renowned public artist Suzanne Holman. Suzanne will be facilitating workshops throughout Peats Ridge Public School and Somersby Public School, to create a mural piece throughout the RSPCA centre based in Somersby. This is a collaborative project between the two participating schools, Art on the Hill and the RSPCA.
