Profile summary:
Magic Lantern is an educational charity dedicated to demonstrating that anyone can engage with, understand and enjoy art. We believe that you can learn anything through art and that art is for everyone. During our talks we show a selection of famous paintings and help explain the stories behind them. But unlike most lectures, the audience is encouraged to join in all the way through and share their own ideas and opinions. Whether you are already an art-lover or don’t think art is for you we aim to show you a different perspective to great works of art.
