Conservation and Restoration

Study of restoration is a founding department at the AFAD. In preparatory classes the students learn to orient themselves in painting or sculpture expressing and feeling, while from the beginning the understanding of the entire restoration process with a maximal artistic and ethical responsibility is emphasized, as well as the autonomous role of restorer in the structure of memorial care, gallery and museum practice. Students may specialize in the restoration of printed works of art, stone or wooden sculptures.
