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.
