Sharon Art Studio and Carrousel

Course Catalog for Summer 2014

The Sharon Art Stu­dio (SAS) is San Francisco’s largest pub­lic art cen­ter. Jointly oper­ated by the San Fran­cisco Recre­ation and Parks Depart­ment (SFRPD) and the Friends of Sharon Art Stu­dio (FOSAS), we are located in an his­toric build­ing in Golden Gate Park and offer arts edu­ca­tion for peo­ple of all ages in ceram­ics, leaded and fused glass, jewelry/metal arts, draw­ing, paint­ing, and mixed media.

But the Sharon Art Stu­dio is more than sim­ply a pub­lic arts edu­ca­tion facil­ity — it’s a com­mu­nity. Every day, peo­ple who are new to the stu­dio find them­selves learn­ing and cre­at­ing along­side indi­vid­u­als who have been attend­ing classes for 5, 15, or even 30 years. It’s a multi-generational group of indi­vid­u­als who come together to learn, cel­e­brate accom­plish­ments, develop friend­ships, and rec­og­nize mile­stones. The stu­dio is an oasis from the real world, a place that fos­ters curios­ity, and an incu­ba­tor of new skills and new rela­tion­ships. As much as art edu­ca­tion, build­ing com­mu­nity is at the heart of what the Sharon Art Stu­dio does.

This cul­ture reaches beyond the walls of the stu­dio into our neigh­bor­hoods and the entire city of San Fran­cisco. The Sharon Art Stu­dio reg­u­larly brings art activ­i­ties to pub­lic spaces in Golden Gate Park, street fairs and farm­ers mar­kets in sur­round­ing neigh­bor­hoods and even to other pub­lic facil­i­ties across San Francisco.

At Sharon Art Stu­dio we’re proud of our com­mu­nity focus. It’s what makes us a unique gem among arts edu­ca­tion facil­i­ties in San Fran­cisco. Whether you join us for a class and potluck at our his­toric facil­ity or come to one of our free pub­lic events, we invite you to come expe­ri­ence our community!
