What's New at the Lyceum



August 31 to September 4

Art in the Great Outdoors
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Ages: 5 to 9
$225 + GST

Joining in the tradition of Tom Thomson, Emily Carr and the Group of Seven, we'll take our sketchbooks and paints out of doors this week. Using stories about these artists as inspiration, we'll create glorious landscapes that celebrate the beauty of our surroundings and explore the relationships between our own moving lines and Mother Nature's paintbrush.

Walk, Shoot and Jot
1:30 PM to 4:30 PM
Ages: 9 to 12
$225 + GST

We’ll venture out into the area surrounding the Lyceum with notebooks and cameras in hand, capturing the usual and unusual that we observe in our travels. With these visual and textual fragments, we’ll return to the Lyceum to polish, put everything together and add a splash of artistic panache. Our final products will be signature bound books comprised of photos and poetic text that capture the extraordinary in the ordinary in our community.

Essays, But Fun
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (five consecutive evenings)
Ages: 12 to 18
$225 + GST

Just before school starts up again, the Lyceum offers to take teens through the art of essay writing. What exactly is a thesis statement? How the heck do you prove it? What’s all this stuff about citing sources? We’ll walk you through it step by step, providing you with no-fail techniques for tackling any essay that might be thrown your way. Using the strangest topics you’ll ever come across, we’ll write two essays in the course of the workshop, giving you the chance to try out everything you’ve learned and receive one-on-one feedback from Lyceum staff.

Give us a call at 604.733.1356 to end the summer with a bang!

Fall Registration

Imagine this.  It is September and all your friends are scrambling to sign their children up for classes.  They are frantic and remarkably sweaty, their eyes wide and red from stress and lack of sleep.  You, on the other hand, are sipping tea on your front porch, watching as the golden light of late summer fades from the sky.  You say things like, “Ahh” and “This is the life.”

That’s because you already signed up for your Lyceum classes back in the summer. 

This dream could be a reality, if you give us a call at 604.733.1356 and let us know which bookclub, writers’ workshop, home learners class, or early childhood education program you’d like to join us for in the fall.

Look at you, all superstar-like.

Mosaic Memory Games

Now available at the Lyceum, our very own Mosaic Memory Card game - a fun and vibrant way to test you memory skills! There are four different sets to collect - combine them all to make a GIANT memory game!

At $5 per set they're a unique small gift - a perfect little present!

If you love literature and art and want to pass along that love to the next generation of readers and creators, this opportunity is for you.

Next Open Mic - Friday, Sept. 11th
Open at 8 PM and mic goes live at 8:30 PM. E-mail us to book your time slot or just join us to enjoy some amazing talent! Our June Open Mic was truly amazing with some new voices that warmed hearts and challenged our thinking.

Next Teen Open Mic -- We need to reconvene and set some new dates for the fall term. Feedback is very welcome.
We're also looking for a spunky emcee to run our events -- contact us to apply!
