Teaching and Learning Resources
This workshop series grows out of research conducted by the GCI's Modern and Contemporary Art Research Initiative. The workshops began in 2009, and disseminate information and research about new products and systems for appropriately cleaning acrylic painted surfaces.
Research from the GCI's Characterization of Asian and European Lacquers project has produced a wealth of new information on methods to identify organic materials in lacquers. This workshop provides detailed guidance on a number of specialized protocols and analytical tools.
