Acrylics are relatively harmless. They contain some alcohol, but mostly water. As long as the room is well ventilated, as you say, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Do acrylics contain nasty pigments like fine art gouache does? I used to airbrush with gouache on paper a bit, and while there's no volatile solvents, the pigments themselves are nightmarish. Cobalt blue and cadmium red are the two that come to mind.

On the equipment side, I have a DeVilbiss Super 63, and some kind of crappy Badger. The Super 63 will make a line as fine as a sharp #2 pencil, but only holds about .5ml of paint.
