CNS 606 Examination and Documentation IV. Prerequisites: CNS 604 and 605; Corequisite: CNS 607. Advanced studies in examination and documentation and in radiography, ultraviolet, infrared, and other imaging techniques appropriate to a student’s areas of conservation specialization and to his or her specialization research project. Application of computed imaging methods, including reflectance transformation imaging, stereoscopy, and photogrammetry. Emphasis on individual supervision for the rapid development of skills sufficient for independent mastery of all examination and documentation techniques presented. Offered annually.

CNS 607 Examination and Documentation IV Lab. Prerequisites: CNS 604 and 605; Corequisite: CNS 606. Laboratory component of CNS 606. Supervised applied practice in examination and documentation and in radiography, ultraviolet, infrared, and other imaging techniques appropriate to a student’s areas of conservation specialization and to his or her specialization project. Supervised practice with reflectance transformation imaging, 3-D imaging, and video documentation. Emphasis on individual supervision for the rapid development of skills sufficient for independent mastery of techniques presented. Offered annually.

THA 226 Acting I. Prerequisite: Instructor permission. Introduction to the fundamental demands of the acting process. Student actors engage in focus and concentration development, improvisation, scene work, and performance as they identify and develop themselves in the artistic process of acting. This course can be supportive for many fields. Offered each fall and spring semester.
