Meisje Met De Parel Onderzoek Restauratie Mauritshuis

Do you know what an art doctor (conservator) does? You will find out during this workshop as part of Festival de Betovering! They clean, study and repair art when it has become worn out. This is very important as the paintings in the Mauritshuis are often 400 years old and have been through a lot. Find out all about this in the special exhibition Facelifts & Makeovers !

Then pull on a white jacket and become an art doctor yourself. You will clean paintings, study them and of course you also get to work with paint. Are you a really careful conservator, or do you prefer to use your own imagination like a real artist?
