A small group venture, designed to create an opportunity to discuss and explore a selected range of five images. More of a collaboration than a conventional talk, it offers a chance for participants to develop and express personal opinions about art. Conventional art historical analysis will be avoided to give way to the many and various interpretations of paintings which all have validity.
Initially there will be a half hour introduction to the selected works, which will be followed by an open session for group discussion. At the end of the session participants will be given a duplicated sheet giving basic information on the pictures shown, to facilitate further exploration.
Maggie is a skilled teacher, who knows her subject well and encourages an audience to look, question and discuss the pictures. She is particularly skilled at selecting images that challenge and delight. This is so much more than a lecture it is a new way of thinking about art.
