Today we welcomed the start of fall (despite the warm LA weather), and the new incoming class of the UCLA/Getty Program!
The class of 2018 will begin their first day of instruction tomorrow with a course focusing on documentation and imaging techniques. They’ll also have the opportunity to take classes this quarter that cover the technology and deterioration of ceramics and glass, principles and ethics in conservation, and science fundamentals in conservation. Two of their courses include object-based projects where they will examine, document and assess the condition of a group of pre-Columbian ceramics from the collection of the Fowler Museum at UCLA. Between their course and lab work, it looks like we will be keeping them pretty busy this quarter!
We wish the class of 2018 good luck with their coursework and lots of success in the conservation program!
