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.

This autumn we are running Introduction to Drawing Architecture with Gail Wareham, a three-part course beginning on 2nd November.

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. Here you can see a 30 minute virtual tour of many of the paintings from the recent exhibition ‘The Glasgow Boys and Girls’, with a commentary by BEA art history tutor, Prof Maria Chester.

Maria has just launched her first website which gives details of her wide range of lectures. Details of Maria’s autumn course for BEA on Ice Age Art, beginning on 5th October, can be found here.
