Art Studio and School Chemistry Lab

NEWS FLASH The Regional Planning Commission has provided several Chemistry Teacher trainings and Art Studio Chemical Safety trainings.  New art teacher and artist trainings and chemistry lab trainings will be offered in April 2023 in Claremont (April 13) and Littleton, NH (April 11).  Art trainings in the morning and chemistry lab trainings in the afternoon.

It may not be obvious, but there are many art products that are hazardous to our health, and need to be handled with care or not used at all.  Becky Wehrman-Andersen from Iowa is the primary trainer for both the art and chemistry lab workshops.  Click here for the current Safe Chemistry flyer to learn more.

The purpose is to provide training about safety in the laboratory handling, storing, and using chemicals.  Since the Regional Planning Commission provides Household Hazardous Waste collections, this was an offshoot of that educational outreach as some schools bring their chemicals to our collections.

Workshop evaluations from the attendees were very positive in allyears, and it is hoped that UVLSRPC will do these workshops again in the future in cooperation with the State of New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.
