ACON 330 Painting & Polychrome Wooden Sculpture Conservation I: Study in Florence, Italy


This course covers all types of painting conservation methods such as the preservation of a work of art, relining, consolidation, cleaning and in-painting. Direct contact with minor original works of art allows beginning students to observe the problems and methods that are presented to a restorer. Students will learn how to apply basic conservation techniques through hands-on experience in order to acquire confidence and knowledge in the reconnaissance of old paintings and their conservation needs. Techniques for the conservation of polychrome wooden sculpture will be introduced, especially mechanical cleaning methods, preserving, and aesthetic in-painting methods.
