The aim of this course is to provide students the opportunity to acquire an appreciation of art inspired by our region. Working thematically from clouds to sea, churches to fields, this course examines artist representations of our beautiful region during the 19th and 20th centuries. Artists include old masters like Constable and Turner alongside more contemporary artists like Maggi Hambling. You will also be introduced to lesser-known but still talented artists such as Anne Valerie Gower, Sylvia St George and Gwen Ravaret. No previous experience of art or the history of East Anglia is necessary- all students are very welcome.
