Tips for a Healthy Studio


The place where art is created should be a nice place to be- comfortable and safe. Keeping a pleasant and healthy environment for making art means you’ll spend more time there, and do better work. Good studio habits include knowing how to use, store and dispose of the materials in use every day.

Like most products used in the home and at work, art materials carry specific recommendations for safe use, storage and disposal. For every new product you bring to the studio, read the label and follow any specific health labeling for safe use. For more detailed advice, request or download materials data safety sheets on any products of concern.
