ARH202 - Art Restoration
Instructor: Roberta Borgheresi
Throughout the course students will work on original works of art in a restoration studio. Materials, tools, techniques, and methodology will be shown during the course.
We will confront fundamental topics on the techniques used to produce a work of art and the problems related to the preservation of these works; then we will work on developing a scientific approach to understanding art during the restoration process.
Above all, a passion for art is necessary. In addition, students should have a recommendation from a professor that speaks to their manual artistic ability, and they must have taken at least one art history class. If not, they have to take Art History I while during the semester.
The course meets twice a week for a total of 6 hours a week. Total contact hours are 70. Suggested credits: 3; Course fees:€80
Student Learning Expectations
Understanding the restoration process. Developing a restoration project. Following the process of restoration until the restored work is catalogued. Having first-hand experience in the artisan's studio.
