Materials Information and Technical Resources for Artists (MITRA) Discussion Forum
University of Delaware's MITRA Discussion Forum is intended to provide independent information and education on art materials to practicing artists and educators around the world. This site will become a critical resource as we share best practices and cutting-edge scientific research with practicing artists. An important aspect of the forum will be its absolute objectivity. No specific brands will be promoted but unique products produced by particular companies may be mentioned in terms of specific questions.
All discussion content within the Forum reflects the independent views of individuals (including but not limited to artists, scientists, conservators, industry representatives, and scholars) and does not necessarily represent the views or judgments held by the University of Delaware and its affiliated personnel, faculty or staff.
