ART 1102 - Basics of Art Conservation

Credits: 4
This introductory, hands-on course will familiarize a student with the basic principles, ethics, and techniques of art conservation and restoration. The lecture part of the class will illuminate the history and development of art conservation science throughout the ages, while the supervised practical part of working on a badly damaged early 19th century European painting, will enable a student to experience the process and enjoy the result. The general education student will develop an appreciation and in-depth knowledge of what is involved in saving our cultural heritage, the art student will also learn about new career choices. Both groups will have deeper understanding of a very comprehensive nature of art conservation profession, and appreciation of the work of many anonymous, highly trained specialists that preserve art world-wide.
