Special needs children get tremendous benefits from art lessons. They are usually poor academically, but not with arts. This study is crucial to maximise these children’s involvement in arts because they are prone to diseases due to their weak immune system.
Most paints are labelled ‘non-toxic’ but they are not entirely safe. The ‘Volatile Organic Compounds’ that is found in common paints is actually hazardous.
This research was to find out ways to produce food grade paints to be used in special children's art classes. Experiments were done with variety of edible ingredients to produce the safest paint substance.
