For Earth Day: Safe Disposal of Artist Materials

Kim Hall writing for Art Calendar magazine said it best: “Paints, solvents, or any art materials, for that matter, are not inherently dangerous. The dangers come from improper management of the materials. As artists, we often become complacent to the dangers of our studios because of deadlines, lack of safety equipment and resources, and lack of easily accessible information. However, in order to keep our families and us safe, learning about studio hazards and materials management needs to be a priority.”

For Earth Day 2010, let’s strive to remember the impact we have as artists on our health and on our environment and remember that it’s our responsibility to dispose of our materials in an appropriate manner. Here are some helpful tips courtesy of Utrecht Art.
