Art safety information
The image to the left is the new AP (Approved Product) Seal from ACMI. It identifies art supplies that are safe and contain no hazardous materials in sufficient quantities to be toxic to people. You should look for this seal whenever purchasing art materials. This seal is being phased in over a 10-year period of time, replacing previous non-toxic seals: CP (Certified Product), HL Health Label (Non-Toxic), and an older AP (Approved Product) seal.
