About Magic Lantern

Magic Lantern is an educational charity that runs interactive art history workshops in schools and to a range of adult groups. We use art to help people observe and explore the world around them and to think creatively and critically.

Our dynamic and inclusive workshops bring to life and enhance a wide range of subjects while stimulating confidence, encouraging an imaginative use of language and sparking a lifelong enjoyment of culture.

Who we are

We are a team of experienced communicators with backgrounds in education and the arts. Each workshop leader has been chosen for their ability to present sessions in an engaging, entertaining style as well as their skill in listening and responding to the class.
