Historic architecture is known to us in primary source materials through drawings or early black-and-white photography.  What’s missing is color and the finishing of a building that makes all the difference in its appearance. Through lectures and hands-on lab work, workshop participants will learn what traditional paints were made of, how they were used, and ways to investigate the finishes history of a building.
