Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest announces its 2017 Architectural History/Architectural Restoration Field School. The intensive two week program will be held from May 14-May 27.

The program provides an overview of the philosophy, process, and techniques for museum-quality architectural restoration and conservation. Students, professionals, and instructors from any background and discipline may qualify. The program is limited to 10 participants each year. Components include: the history of Thomas Jefferson and his villa retreat; architectural investigation, documentation, and restoration techniques. Behind-the-scenes visits to other museum properties are included. A key part of the program is investigating and documenting an historic structure and producing an historic structures investigation report. This is an excellent understanding of the nexus of historic architecture, architectural history, and public history.

Application deadline: April 7.

More information and a typical schedule can be found on the website: http://www.poplarforest.org/programs/restoration/field_school

Contact: Travis McDonald (434) 534-8123, travis@poplarforest.org

Scholarships are available and the program typically qualifies for independent college credit.
