Art/Business Workshop - Hidden Hazards in the Arts
Artists can learn about safer chemicals, storage and disposal at a free Hidden Hazards in the Arts workshop sponsored by the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County (LHWMP), and the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council.

The workshop is Tuesday, September 16, 6:30pm- 8:30pm, at the Shoreline City Hall, 17544 Midvale Ave N.  Shoreline, WA. Participants will learn helpful tips on how they can protect themselves from the many toxic chemicals typically used in a variety of artistic mediums.

Donna Galstad, a Health and Environmental Investigator with the LHWMP Art Hazards team, will discuss art techniques, options for less-toxic art supplies and ways to reduce risks from chemicals, as well as other services, such as disposal and recycling.

"Artists are very creative with the materials and techniques that they use. Most don't realize that they are often employing dangerous chemicals in dangerous ways," Galstad said.

"We are here to help them take out some of the risks from handling these chemicals, particularly since many artists have home studios and we want to help them protect their health and their families," she said.

The LHWMP Art Hazards project team collaborates with artists, art colleges, cooperatives, museums, galleries and suppliers to help artists and art educators.

The group works to decrease arts-related risks by reducing potential exposures to chemical hazards; and to ensure hazardous art materials are properly recycled or disposed, when they are no longer needed.

Anyone interested in hosting a workshop, or suggesting a workshop topic can contact Dave Waddell, Art Chemical Hazards Project Coordinator, at 206-263-3069 ordave.waddell@kingcounty.gov.

The Local Hazardous Waste Management Program is a partnership of local governments including the City of Seattle, King County, suburban cities, and rural areas in King County, working together to manage hazardous wastes and protect health and the environment. Visit them at www.hazwastehelp.org
