Wednesday, February 10, 2016
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- SF State’s art department made its first major increases to instructional materials fees in 20 years this spring, forcing returning studio art majors to pay double or even triple the fee costs of last semester. Of the 80 studio art classes currently requiring materials fees, 38 of those had their fees increased by at least 50 percent this semester, with some of the largest increases 300 percent or more, according to data provided by art department Chair Gail Dawson.
