Re: RE:masks in the artroom

What type of mask does everyone use? I have seen the cheap 10 for a dollar ones and the more expensive ones. The only time I have made my students wear a mask is in my ceramic 2 class when we make our own glazes. In my art 1 class we have never done anything that created a toxic smell. I really liked the spray paint lesson that was really posted and hoping to include that this year. Any suggestion on what type of mask to get?

  I wear a mask when the kids are doing chalk pastels and carving the foam
  blocks that I use for printmaking. I give the kids a choice with the pastels
  but with printmaking the choice is to use the foam meat trays and no mask or
  to use the powder producing foam blocks and wear a mask. Also the rule for
  removing dust is to tap on the floor and not blow the dust away. Most like
  to use the foam blocks so will wear a mask. Of course we were all wearing
  masks last year because of Sars so they are used to them. I also got alot of
  masks donated to the artroom as everyone stocked up on hundreds of masks but
  given that our flats are so small here and the fear is over, no one has room
  to store them. I am really enjoying looking at everyones sites. next year I
  will have the support to help me get a site on line, so hopefully I can
  share more. Catharine in Hong Kong
