But the best place that we visited was The Torpedo Factory. This is a World War II factory where actual torpedoes were built. Now it houses three stories of small artist studios. We were able to go through the small studios that were open at the time of our visit and speak with the artists. We could ask them questions, get tips and generally brouse or buy if we so desired. We met some very nice and wonderful artists from many artistic backgrounds. It was the best day.
