An Independent Non-Profit
In 1991 a group of students founded the non-profit Friends of Sharon Art Studio (FOSAS) in order to advocate on behalf of the Sharon Art Studio’s program and facility. For more than 30 years FOSAS has partnered with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department to sustain and enhance the studio and its programming. FOSAS employs over 30 teachers along with the Program Manager, Cassandra Sechler, and the Executive Director, Nicki Guard.
