Many of these can pose risks to artist’s health over time; including reproductive harm, cancer, depressed lung function, chemical sensitivity and neurological harm. More troubling, these risks can also affect those we come in contact with, if we’re not careful.This engaging and informative workshop will provide you with an understanding of the ways art chemicals can harm you and how you can reduce those harmful exposures. It’s also a chance for you to get answers to questions about the specific circumstances in your practice and your studio from an expert in this field.

Topics covered include:

  • Avoiding exposures to toxic solvents in painting, encaustic and printmaking
  • Which are the most hazardous products in your discipline?
  • Selecting safer adhesives
  • How to clean your studio without mobilizing toxic dusts
  • Studio ventilation design for health
  • Ways to cut the costs of protecting your health from toxic art materials
  • Safer alternatives to hazardous products in all disciplines
