BEA has developed a varied programme of practical art classes and workshops with local artists over recent years. Our art history programme has ranged from the study of prehistoric art and ancient civilisations to western art of the 20th Century.

We have also developed a close working relationship with Berwick Visual Arts and we programme art events to support exhibitions at the Granary Gallery, Berwick. The Granary Gallery is currently closed but you can see a 30 minute virtual tour of many of the paintings from the exhibition ‘The Glasgow Boys and Girls’, with a commentary by BEA art history tutor, Prof Maria Chester here.  

Prof Maria Chester’s next course will be a ten part study of ‘La Belle Époque’, beginning 9th February. Maria has just launched her first website which gives details of her wide range of lectures here.
