Save Our Fine Arts
Welcome to Save Our Fine Arts. We are a group of students, parents, educators and professionals that advocate for strong fine arts programs in our schools through offering students exceptional opportunities to participate in high quality fine arts education. We believe that:
1. The arts are an integral part of a vibrant, healthy society by fostering civic pride, enhancing quality of life, and attracting the best in the world to make our city and province their home.
2. Strong fine arts education program are crucial in cultivating creative, whole-minded citizens, as well as the next generation of artists to further inspire our society.
3. The skills gained through arts education, such as problem solving and self-motivation, are lifelong assets that also benefit those in non-arts professions.
4. To effectively drive the province's creative economy, quality fine arts programs require sustainable resources and support, including the commitment and alignment of institutions, government and communities.
