Torpedo Factory Art Center

Thanks to a comment by Teer Hardy I am planning a visit to the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia. According to their website they have three floors of open studios and galleries. They also offer art classes through The Art League School.

If you would like a studio in the Torpedo Factory they have an application process on their site. There are also opportunities to showcase art work and support the center with monetary donations.

Have you been to the Torpedo Factory? Do you have a favorite art medium? If you have not been, be sure to go. Admission is free.

We leave for the DC area soon. I will post pictures of my adventure and any galleries/museums along the way.
