Appraisal Workshop AUC Art Collective

The work of an Appraiser is integral to all object-based career pathways. Art Historians, Curators, Gallerists, Historians and beyond, must understand how art and objects derive their value and how value is determined. Relatedly, pursuing a career as an Appraiser offers exciting ways to engage a variety of skill sets and interests.

During this introductory workshop, participants will learn from a leading appraiser of the International Society of Appraisers, Genice Lee.

Ms. Lee will introduce and answer questions on topics such as:

• How to conduct object research

• How an object’s condition relates to its value

• How value is tracked and recorded

• How valuation varies depending on the object or media

• The evolution of the appraisal industry

Participants will also learn about the International Society of Appraiser's Winter 2023 online Core Course in Appraisal Studies, for which six students will receive a full tuition scholarship to complete.
