in the tradition of Tom Thomson, Emily Carr and the Group of Seven,

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

photos and poetic text that capture the extraordinary in the ordinary in
Essays, But Fun

Ages: 12 to 18

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!
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.
