The Gadigal people are the traditional custodians of the land on which Addi Road stands.

Post-colonial The land was cleared for use as a dairy, market garden and brickworks.

The process of making art. Lessons in life.

Inspired by stained glass windows, L aged 7, has planned and created this pony painting. Taking time to arrange ideas and organise materials before realising the final art work is an important and transferable skill.  Children often rush their work because adults rush them. Let's give them time to learn and enjoy the process.  Here L has also learned about colour mixing and values, composition, brush techniques.    ...and had fun doing it.

We made Mandalas A big shout out to the Bill Crews Foundation for a cracking BBQ. The team at 3 Bridges were keen to get making. And a special mention to all the lovely families we met on such a beautiful day.
