Holiday Programs 2014
December 14 to December 23, 2013

This December, we’re bringing you ten days of the things that the holidays are all about; things like favourite stories read aloud, cold hands around warm drinks, and homemade gifts given with love. Each program includes winter-themed stories, a homemade cookie and the chance to create unique handmade items in a warm and relaxing environment. For details, see here.

The Alt Lit Club Starts Soon!

If you like comics and manga and are interested in the many techniques artists employ to tell stories graphically, then this is the program for you!

How can you illustrate the passage of time? The movement of an object? The complex emotions of a fully-formed character? Graphic novel expert Susan Ma comes at these questions with a wealth of experience in the art form, as well as extensive knowledge of the latest and greatest on bookstore shelves. Membership in the club also comes with access to the Lyceum's extensive graphic novel collection, which students are encouraged to borrow from, and talk about.

Sundays 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Ages: 10 to 14
October 26; November 2, 16, 23, 30; December 7 (6 sessions)
Cost: $324.00 + GST
