Craig Deller has been teaching the Interior Surfaces Conservation Lab in the Historic Preservation graduate program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago since 1999.
These hands-on, all day labs teaches the basics guidelines, ethics and techniques.
Many small-medium sized museums have benefited by the
pro-bono work performed by the students during their training.
Students have learned proper and
re-treatable treatments on a wide variety of materials; stone, terra-cotta, wood, metals, glass and more.
