The Creative Uncommon


The Creative Uncommon

Immersive small group art and culinary experiences in The Lyceum Gallery

for students aged 9-12 years

Looking for something different this summer?

Join us as we explore different food destinations around the city in search of the stories, ingredients and recipes from different culinary traditions. Then spend some time in the studio building skills and creating work for a group show in The Lyceum Gallery.

The Lyceum’s Director Holly and Chef Sam bring their combined experience from an array of artistic disciplines including:

culinary arts

creative writing

fundamental drawing techniques

graphic narrative and sequential art



botanical studies

ink making

watercolours and inkwork


cyanotype and anthotype printing


Each day, students will receive cooking lessons (with lunch of course!) as well as formal art instruction and interdisciplinary studio time. There will be a group show of their work in the Lyceum Gallery from August 31-Sept 3. We will also be sure to get outside to explore and record the city’s gardens, built environments and wild spaces.

The Creative Uncommon hours are 10-4.

Before and aftercare are also available from 8.30-10 am and 4-5.30 pm.

Fees $395 per week

Before or aftercare sessions are $20 each
