ART & THEATER SAFETY

Safety Policy

The Art Department fosters a culture of safety. Our Safety Policy for Studio Art Students contains safety information pertinent to specific disciplines of study, as well as general safe studio practice guidelines. Also included are methods of handling hazardous art materials we are required to follow to minimize risk for the user and for the environment.

All students enrolled in art courses in Hillyer Hall are automatically registered in the Moodle course “Art Safety_20XX”, which contains a Safety Quiz everyone is required to take. The quiz pulls questions directly from the Safety Policy for Studio Arts Students and is open book. You have three attempts to pass with a 70% grade or higher. A passing grade on the quiz indicates that you agree to comply with all rules and regulations described in the Safety policy for Studio Art Students and that you understand the risks.
