Summer Teachers Institute in Technical Art History (STITAH) July 23 - 27, 2012
Following the success of the inaugural program last July held at the Conservation Center, Institute of Fine Arts, the second Summer Teachers Institute in Technical Art History (STITAH) is being held at Yale University, New Haven, CT. This course offers a unique opportunity for professional development for art history faculty, providing a broad introduction to technical art history through object examination, technical studies, analytical equipment demonstrations, gallery tours, hands-on practical sessions, and more. STITAH will introduce participants to technical art history through instruction, discussion and practical workshops, drawing on works of art selected from the rich collections of the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art. Study units will focus on Early Italian Painting, polychromy, works of art on paper including printmaking techniques, and American 18- 19th century painting (with particular focus on John Trumbull’s working methods). Participating professors will be encouraged to explore and, in turn, receive guidance in creative ways of integrating technical art history into their own classes, whether introductory undergraduate courses of courses at the more advanced undergraduate level.
