Art is life to me. Access to art education and training is vital to a modern society. Life is much more than dollars and cents. What's it all for if there is no beauty, art to see, covet and buy to enrich one's life.

I have become a fiber artists in my own time but seeing the amazing beauty, art, and practical clothing etc has me dreaming of how fabulous it would be to go to the school and broaden my ability to create with fiber. I make needle felted wool dolls that are anatomically detailed, and have not found anything like them anywhere. They are art and deserve protection and continuation.

Capilano needs to relook at their education strategy. Right now they're doing a dismal job of providing excellent, affordable public academics.

Former Cap student; Disliking the current direction the University is going in in order to restrict the arts and focus on business. It makes the school bleak.

This was a unique and outstanding program. I had hoped to attend it in the future, Choosing it over Emily Carr, because of the textile components. Institutions shape the community around them, and I am sad for the people of the north shore who will be losing this influence.

I am not a student at Capilano nor have I ever been. But despite that I know that art programs are important. It is often how we feel/express the world around us. It is very short sighted to stop a valuable program to save a few bucks. Especially when there are not a lot of other options open to potential students of the arts. Please rethink this wrong headed move.
