The Art & Creative Materials Institute In school and at home, be sure to promote the safe use of art materials by choosing ACMI-certified products. It is important to look for and observe all safety information on product labels and to use only products bearing the AP Seal with children. A few adult materials have been labeled with cautionary use instructions where misuse could present a potential health risk. These bear the CL Seal. We urge you to look for ACMI's AP and CL Seals on the art materials you purchase for school and home use. For additional information, please visit our website at www. acminet.org.
