Fair use rationale for Image:Calarts logo.gif
Image:Calarts logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 19:40, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
High Tuition at Cal Arts
I've taught at Cal Arts and the tuition there currently (20l0) is $34,830. You could go to a California Community College for about $300 per semester by comparison and the education would be roughly equivalent. Cal Arts doesn't require good grades to get in but neither do community colleges. The idea of Cal Arts is basically sound--talent and creativity should be the primary focus but unfortunately, as in all academic settings, petty bickering, clashing egos and academic back-stabbing are present so this dilutes the artistic process. Potential students should be made aware that they are entering a political arena at Cal Arts and with its high cost of tuition, due consideration should be given as to whether it's the right school for them. People are jockeying for position at Cal Arts and since there's no tenure the last time I checked, the faculty is concerned about holding on to their jobs, which aggravates the political situation. Thought I'd give a heads up and hope this helps potential students make an informed choice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 23:42, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Animation students are concerned about the high cost of tuition at Cal Arts, but typically a student might study there only a year and then get a job in the animation industry--Cal Arts is a door to work. So be aware of this option as a stepping stone to work, especially if you already have a lot of talent. An advantage of Cal Arts is that it has industry connections right there in downtown L.A. (after all, it was founded by Disney). 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:50, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
I propose that REDCAT be merged into Calarts. I think that the content in the RedCat article can easily be explained in the context of Calarts, and the Calarts article is of a reasonable size that the merging of CalArts will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned.

As a resident of Los Angeles, I can attest to the important, freestanding identity of REDCAT to the city's art community. Its independently curated programs since its founding over the last decade demonstrate a strong, self-sustained presence that complements, but has grown beyond a mere association with the educational mission of CalArts, stated explicitly in both of the interviews referenced in the article. I look forward to seeing the page expanding separately within the wikipedia database.

REDCAT is a producing house and many of the things that come through have nothing to do with CalArts.
