If you have paintings in your acquisition it is your responsibility to preserve it in order to restore the heritage for the next generation. There may be various reasons why the precious paintings may become damaged. Whatever the reason might be it needs immediate restoration. Restoration of any medium of arts should be left to professionals. In Bangladesh if one wants to do so it is impossible to find an expert who would take care of the job, as there is none. However, there is some good news. The Shilpokala Academy recently organised a 9 month long training workshop on professional art preservation, which will end this June.
With the help of Norwegian government they are training 8 individuals who are receiving training on preservation, restoration, and renovation. Several of them will receive more intensive training abroad. Subir Choudhury, Director, Dept of Fine Arts at the Academy tells us " We wish to build a permanent conservation laboratory. Our Basic goal is to restore legendary works of our artists and provide conservation services to individual art collectors". The restorers have already started conserving the damaged paintings in the Shilpokala's collection. They also helped several private collectors.
In the future Shilpokala Academy with the help of these trained experts will arrange more workshops on preservation. The basic goal is to create professional experts who would meet the countries need.Art appreciation course
