Aurora Art Conservation regularly participates in community outreach, offering lectures and discussions to both public and private audiences. Topics include presentations of treatments related to the group (completed for an individual member, a local historical society, a hosting museum, etc.) or more general conservation subjects including philosophies, controversies, or landmark treatments. We are willing to work with your group to tailor a presentation to the interests and needs of your members.
Eileen is also dedicated to welcoming young adults about to, and educating them about the field of conservation. She teaches an undergraduate, semester-long class in Museum Conservation which focuses on the role of conservation within the museum environment and the interconnectedness of conservation practices with the entire museum staff. Eileen also supplements a variety of other art history class offerings with basic information about materials and techniques, as well as paintings, paper, and objects conservation activities and issues pertinent to the topic.
