"Direct involvement" (community impacts) - Economic: it is a way people can make money. Cultural: art strengthens a community's "sense of collective identity". Social: art builds social capital (the network of relationships which allows a community to function effectively).

"Audience participation" (community impacts) - Economic: people will spend money on art or any business nearby, like a restaurant. This especially applies in arts festivals. People will also spend money on venues. Cultural: art strengthens the identity of the community. It "leads to positive community norms, such as diversity, tolerance, and free expression." Social: art can bring completely different types of people together.

"Presence of artists and arts organizations" (community impacts) - Economic: it heightens the possibility of "community members to participate in the arts". It makes the community look more attractive to tourists, which will bring more business to the community. Cultural: it "improves community image and status". Social: it encourages diversity, and it reduces crime.

Inlay - the process of attaching canvas to holes in the painting, "preferably from the edge of the painting." Reinforcing - the process of attaching silk organza to the tacking edges of the painting because it does not need to be strip lined. Stretcher/strainer - the material used to support a painting. A stretcher is adjustable, but a strainer is not.

Fill-in - when retouching a painting, "putty" must be applied first. By doing so, the restorer should be able to match texture of the impasto. Impasto - "the built up paint, generally with impressions of the brush." Because it is easy for dirt to collect on the impasto, it is hard to clean.

Vapor treatment - it involves using moisture and heat to take out wrinkles or creases on the painting. Varnish - it is a protective coating applied to a painting. It dries clear and it gives the painting a glossy, new look. Crazing - when cracks appear on the layer of varnish or the layer of paint. Bloom - when "the varnish layer becomes cloudy and blotchy". This could be the result of too much moisture in the air. Crosslinking - this is when the layer of varnish becomes "stiff and insoluble".

"Restoring artwork is an art in and of itself." Restoring a piece of art could either increase or decrease the value of the artwork. Pollution, light exposure, or even the restorer can damage a piece of art. When properly restored, an artwork's value will increase.
kristen monier's comment, March 26, 2014 10:32 AM
Sometimes, restoring artwork costs more money than the value of the piece of art. "The value of art is highly subjective." Restoring artwork can negatively affect the economy if it costs too much. Society may frown upon art restoration for this reason, even if the piece of art has historical significance.

You need to achieve a bachelor's degree with a mix of artistic, historical, and scientific majors to be a well educated art restorer. From there, you need to achieve a masters in art restoration. It is important to do an internship to gain hands on experience.

Many pieces of art have varnish to protect and enhance them. Sometimes, the varnish will turn yellow and damage the painting it was once protecting. "Exposing the varnish to ultraviolet light accelerates the yellowing and cracking process." **Aspect 1

When cleaning a painting, it is important to remove the dust, dirt, and old layer of varnish. It is important to be careful so the pigments of the painting do not come off with the varnish. It is important to know the "chemical make-up" of artwork to preserve it better. **Aspect 1

" Art is universal and it is everywhere, we experience art on a daily basis." Art is seen in "theater", "architecture", and "literature". We express our feelings and beliefs through art. Art has taught us about past cultures. An example of this would be the drawings cavemen drew on cave walls. **Aspect 3
