Course Learning Outcomes

This Course aims at: Creating in the students an awareness about the importance of and for preservation of works of art and historical-cum-traditional crafts for posterity through careful handling and proper storage and through restoration according to the international principles of conservation of works of art, and enabling the students to undertake quality repair works of art and rare crafts by themselves as well as to supervise work of those working under their supervision. At present there is a great paucity of qualified Restorers and Conservators for conserving works of art and rare archival records. A few Restorers/Conservators who are currently in this profession are chemist by qualification and hence are not capable enough of handling restoration of valuable art works. The basic objectives of this Course is to remove this dilemma and help create a new generation of Art Restorers with background and qualification of different disciplines of Fine Arts.
