This newly created resource ‘Health in the Arts Compendium’ encompasses a very substantial collection of writings about all health and safety topics relevant to visual artists working in most of the established mediums, including drawing and painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry etc., as well as many more articles dedicated to specialized and science-based health and safety topics and experience and advice from the medical field.
Many of the articles included here were created by the Center for Safety in The Arts. This new resource of about 130 articles edited and compiled by Friedhard Kiekeben for nontoxicprint, is a collaboration with the Health in The Arts Institute at the University of Illinois Chicago. It is designed to be useable as a stand-alone resource as well as an expanded pool of essays on topics that integrate very well with other areas, pages and subjects on nontoxicprint.com | We are especially grateful to Dr David Hinkamp, MD, MPH, for his kind assistance in creating this online work which we hope will be of interest to artists, educators, teachers, and hobbyists from many fields of creative practice.
