Being a student at the “sculpture department” of the academy of art in SF, I have seen so many potentially dangerous scenarios in the metal shop, jewelry rooms, wood shop, and even the clay and glaze rooms (toxic chemicals). I often feel that the teachers are not paying enough attention. It is certainly tough to keep an eye on 15 or more students at a time, while still trying to teach. But it would help a lot if teachers would be a lot more strict from the first day on, and even send students home if they don’t show up properly dressed etc.

It takes a lot of responsibility to have complete newbies operate a table saw, a gas forge, belt sanders, handle toxic chemicals. If it was my school, every first session would have to be on safety, and I would quiz on it and not let failing students touch anything until they get it…
