SCI 215: Science of Art Conservation & Preservation

Class Program
Credits 3

This course will focus on the multidisciplinary aspects of art conservation and preservation. We will examine how works of art can be altered by exposure to environmental conditions and organisms. We will examine how conservationists research an artwork to develop a strategy to restore the work to as close to its original state as possible. This course will fulfill the Natural Sciences-General Education requirement. Note: prior knowledge of art and chemistry would be beneficial. (Cross-listed with CHM 215)
