Little Loft is a neighborhood art space offering crafting for middle schoolers, art enrichment for elementary students, and art exploration classes for preschoolers. We also host project-based kids' birthday parties and adult events.

We have weekly open hours where preschoolers can play in our sensory room with an adult caregiver. See below for current Open Studio schedule.


The Takoma Metro station will be closed from November 25th to December 10th to rebuild interlocking outside the station. Free limited shuttle bus service will operate between Fort Totten, Takoma, and Silver Spring stations. More information here.

gift making for kids

Calling all elves! Make your own gifts this season! Our handmade gifts are designed to be practical as well as thoughtful, and they're a great conversation piece to hear about your child's creative process and artistic choices. Sign up for one or both. Join in - or drop off and do some holiday shopping in the neighborhood while you wait. Shop small this season - support local businesses! Ages 5-10.

Hot chocolate and holiday music provided.
