BCA’s Art Handler Certificate Program offers participants an opportunity to learn new skills and/or enhance existing skill-sets and to equip them with the technical skills to design and develop innovative operational protocols for risk management, logistics, and loss prevention.
Workshops are structured as 1- or 2-day sessions that cover topics such as re-framing, stretching and rolling of canvases, installation, mounting and hanging of artworks. The Art Handler Training Certificate Program serves as an introduction to conservation practices: sculpture, woodwork, glass / ceramics, tapestry and canvas, paperwork mounting and matting, tools and hardware of the trade.
BCA’s art handling curriculum is dynamic and designed to capitalize on strengths that each individual brings into the program. The program has evolved over the years to include art history, business marketing, and professional development.
BCA’s Art Handler Training Program is the only program in New York City which combines theory and hands-on application. All students participate in 150-hour training and 50 internship hours with partnering organizations, museums, auction houses, and arts organizations throughout the tri-state area.
