dc.description.abstract The writer of this research paper has become increasingly aware of the health hazards that educators are faced with daily. It has only been in the last few years the dangers of art materials, unventilated art rooms, and unvented kilns have been made known.It is the intent of this writer to inform, through this research, art educators of health risks to both students and teachers. The writer has found that very few art educators are aware of the dangers of materials and fumes found in most art classrooms.Art educators throughout the years have been totally unaware that many of the materials they have used in the classroom or in their private art studios have been very detrimental to students' health as well as to their own. It has only been in the last few years that a few art educators have become aware of the hazards of art materials. Many teachers of art have suffered ill health or even death from contact with hazardous materials found in paint, turpentine, clays, glazes, unvented kilns, solvents, etc. en_US
