We are quickly approaching the application deadline (March 15) for our 2011 summer field school, which is dedicated to the study of preservation of cultural heritage and offers students the opportunity to study, do field work, and travel in Italy. This year we have added a program on paper restoration, as well as continuing our courses on building, art and ceramics restoration.

Courses offered:
· Introduction to Conservation of Archeological Ceramics link
· Traditional Painting Materials and Techniques in Italy link
· Restoration Issues and Theory in Italy link
· Introduction to Art and Building Restoration in Italy link
· Surveying and Analyzing Historic Buildings link

If you know any who may be interested in this type of study and who are still looking for a field school, we would be very grateful if you would inform them about our program.
