Save Fort Mason Campus! Vote to Keep the Campus Open

The Fort Mason Campus of the City College of San Francisco houses some of the most dynamic art courses that San Francisco has to offer. Arts such as Painting, Ceramics, Jewelry Making, Mono-Print, Drawing, Sculpture, Wood Shop and much much more are all taught at Fort Mason and the setting is one of the most beautiful and inspirational.

Fort Mason sits on the waters edge in the Marina near the blue bay and beside the grass of the Presidio. Closing this campus would be a travesty and more action in the direction of destroying the arts that are so important to the student curriculum.

The instructors, courses and environment at Fort Mason is an element of San Francisco City College that cannot be compromised. Any recommendation to close that campus should be opposed in an effort to save the arts and the memories and inspiration that come from Fort Mason. It's a community. Please Recommend saving the Fort Mason CCSF Campus!

      keep Ft Mason vibrant with the great art community it is nurturing with these classes. Closing down an educational venue needs to be rethought and new ideas created for its longevity. It's an invaluable service to many artists.

      I am a high school art teacher and part time art student. The Fort Mason campus is such a valuable resource for any and all aspiring artists. The courses are rich, the instructors are invaluable, the students are inspiring and inspired! PLEASE don't take this location away from the future students...don't take this away from my high school students.
