Programs offer artistic balance to campus, financial assistance to Lorton Arts Foundation.
Metropolitan School of the Arts President and Founder Melissa Dobbs saw the news as a call for help, and a blessing of an opportunity: In mid-June, 2012, a story appeared in the newspaper explaining that the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton was in a financial crisis.
Metropolitan Fine Arts Center (MFAC) of Alexandria has officially moved into the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton. The new studio at the Workhouse Arts Center, building W-4, is 7,000 square feet, much larger than their former location in Fairfax Station, allowing for more classes and performance space.
