What is the Wunder Gym?

Wunder Gym is a practical art program to stretch and satisfy your creative curiosity. Emerging, established or simply curious creatives will delight in the opportunity to extend their skills and practice through unique project briefs, artist mentorships and group exhibitions.

Founded by Melbourne creative all-rounder Annette Wagner, Wunder Gym aims to support creative exploration and build creative confidence for members at all career stages.

Through artist mentor workshops, exhibitions and community support of your practice, WG offers an affordable entry point to art education with a real return on investment built-in.



Who are our Members?

Wunder Gym Members come from a diverse range of artistic backgrounds. Some are emerging or mid-career artists who feel 'stuck', pining for a mentors and likeminds to encourage growth and expansion in their practice. 

Some Members are established artists who are looking for ‘stretch projects’ and exposure to different forms and methods to their own practice. Some members are creative industry professionals who wish to explore an arts practice for themselves, beyond their job title or client list. And some - regarded as an ‘artist’ or not - simply want to strengthen their creative muscle!


Many creatives struggle with their own internal monologues about being creative and seek a supportive, inclusive community to build resilience and creative confidence.

Wunder Gym is that community.
