Fort Mason Artists (FMA) is committed to providing the experience of art making and acquiring new skills in figurative drawing, painting and sculpting with clay to artists of every level. With our goal of reaching all
students throughout the Bay Area and beyond, regardless of income level, FMA offers full and partial scholarships for those in need of financial support who meet eligibility requirements. Funding is made possible through General Funds, Grants and individual and group donations.
Since F.M.A. is a nascent nonprofit organization, our funding for scholarships is limited and your participation as a donor is essential for its success. We encourage our supporters to donate generously as a tax deductible donation. The gift of providing art classes for those with limited incomes is priceless.
