COMING ART SCHOOL
It is therefore satisfactory to know that Vancouver is within measurable distance of the establishment of an arts and crafts school. For three or four years the B.C. Art League has been working with this end in view, and successive committees have procured and tabulated a vast amount of information with regard to the cost, the equipment, the curriculum, the teachers and the general conduct of such a school. It has now been decided that the best way of bringing about the fruition of this work will be to co-operate with the School Board as by this means certain funds appropriated for art instruction by the Federal Government will be available. There will be an advisory board nominated by the B.C. Art League, and the operations of the school will have a practical bearing on constructive trades and occupations. An energetic committee of which Mr. C. Marega is chairman, has the matter to hand and all those who desire to take up courses in decorative arts and crafts school are requested to send in their names as soon as possible to the secretary of the B.C. Art League, Art Gallery, 933 Granvillle Street.
The annual fee will be, for day classes, $100, and for night classes from $5 to $20, according to the specialized craft selected by the pupil for instruction.
