Art Conservation for the Collector

COURSE

Course description

Whether you own a treasured artwork painted by an ancestor, a mysterious thrift store find, or are an avid art collector, this 3-hour introduction to the applied science of art conservation will change the way you look at paintings. 

The materials that paintings and frames are composed of is a fascinating world unto itself. Learn how a paintings conservator examines and repairs damaged paintings and frames. A basic understanding of condition issues and some basic principles of conservation will help guide future purchases and assist you to maintain and display your artworks.

You are encouraged to bring a small/easily transported painting to class for discussion. Market value will not be assessed but information about materials and techniques, identification and condition may be explored. For suggestions on how to pack and transport your painting, please see https://www.canada.ca/en/conservation-institute/services/conservation-preservation-publications/canadian-conservation-institute-notes/wrapping-painting.html.

Please note: This course is limited to 15 students.
