For the Art
Conservation major we recommend starting with ARTC 280: Studio in the Materials
and Techniques of Drawing in the West, a drawing course taught by Brian Baade
in fall semester. In the spring, take ARTC 185 Color Mixing and Matching. In
addition to the drawing and color course, we require at least one more
traditional methods course and two additional courses from the Art Department. See
list below for options.
The following courses are taught by Brian Baade:
ARTC 185 Color Mixing and Matching (Spring)
ARTC 280 Studio in the Materials and Techniques of Drawing in the West (Fall)
ARTC 488 Studio Materials and Techniques of Painting I
ARTC 489 Studio Materials and Techniques of Painting II
Art Department Courses
least three courses from the Art Department are required. Choose
courses from the list below, but you should think about how to put
together a studio portfolio that will meet conservation graduate school course requirements.
