Friends of the Arts

CREATE. PERFORM. COMMUNICATE.

Welcome to Friends of The Arts (FoTA), the parent-led organization that promotes and fosters growth and interest in the arts programs at The Barstow School! 

A FoTA membership is available to any supporter of The Arts at Barstow—parents and guardians, grandparents, alumni or community members. 
 
We foster the ideals of creativity, imagination, and inventiveness and support the faculty and staff who manage and direct The Barstow's visual arts, vocal and instrumental music, theatre, debate, speech, film, broadcast and print journalism.
