Course Title: Art in East Anglia
Course Number: C2228012
Course Description: This course celebrates the artistic achievements made by East Anglian artists over a hundred years and how they contributed to the reputation of the area as one of the most attractive places to live and work following the success of internationally renowned artists such as Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable. This course will focus on a range of artists, both male and female, that made a significant contribution to East Anglian art in different periods, styles and subjects . From the delicately conceived water colour studies by Leonard Squirrell, the “kitchen sink” dramas by Colin Moss in the 1950’s to the stunning commissioned work by Anna Airy, the first female war artist in the First World War. Andrew Casey is a member of the Ipswich Art Society and knew some of these artists

Course Title: Smuggling in East Anglia
Course Number: C2228011
Course Description: In this course we will consider the golden age of smuggling in the 17th and 18th century. We will look at what was smuggled and why and consider the various highly creative methods used by the smugglers to evade capture. The smugglers operated all along the East Anglian coast, often with the cooperation of the local communities and we will examine the main locations they used and how they got their contraband past the authorities. To try to turn the tide of smuggling the government tried all sorts of methods over the years - often unsuccessfully. We will examine the various government actions and why they ultimately failed to prevent the smuggling gangs.
