Did you know that Stonecrest Home Arts is moving to Northern Virginia?

The staff of Stonecrest has offered cutting edge programs on the home arts since 1984. Initially all programs were offered at the headquarters in DC. We expanded the programs in 2005 when we began to offer them at a more suitable site in Reston, Virginia. Over the past few years, the programs offered in Reston have been oversubscribed and it has become clear that moving Stonecrest Home Arts headquarters to the Northern Virginia area – close to our stakeholders and to the site where we carry out our programs – is a critical next step for further development of our mission.
