Question by : What is a good location in Washington DC/Arlington, VA for hands-on artsy/creative people?
I have a good friend who is a girl 20 years old coming to visit in Arlington, VA, and I am trying to think of things she would enjoy doing in the Arlington/Washington DC area. She likes “artsy” things, that are hands-on. Not art such as museums or theaters, but hands-on art, such as “making things.” I have only lived here a few months so I hardly know where to look. Any ideas?

    The Torpeado Factory in Old Towne Alexadria is great. I’ts an old WWII weapons factory turned art school and exibit hall. You can tour and see the teachers and students or partisipate if you like. It’s right on the water in the center of historic Alexandria.

    Old Town Alexandria is really your best bet, or Artomatic in Crystal City. (I forget what time of the year that goes on, though.)
