Family ArtsBash is May 11 at ArtsWestchester

The joy of creativity takes center stage on May 11 at ArtsWestchester’s 2024 Family ArtsBash.


The four-hour ticketed event invites kids to join craft workshops like felt flower-making; get their faces painted; or watch a puppet show. Guests of all ages can experience ArtsWestchester’s latest exhibition, a survey of 22 local artists who represent the breadth of creative expression in the Lower Hudson Valley.


Visitors can also chat with artists in their studios and find unique artisan gifts to complete Mother’s Day shopping lists.

“Art has no age requirements. The Family ArtsBash allows children to explore various art forms as they learn to identify their interests and passions. At the same time, adults can enjoy an exhibition and face time with the creative people who help make Westchester County such an interesting place to live and raise a family,” said ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam.


Workshops for children include: card making, mask making, edible art, friendship bracelets, and clay creations.


ArtsWestchester’s historic landmark building is a creative hub that artists and creative businesses call home. Thirteen artists will open their studios from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The artists will offer visitors insights into processes that include painting, collage, ballet, and photography.


Falafel Taco of Pleasantville will sell food indoors in the gallery and a food truck will be parked outside.


Tickets to the Family ArtsBash cost $10 per child aged 3 to 17. The event is free for adults, guardians and children under 3. The Family ArtsBash will be held at 31 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains. 


Family ArtsBash is sponsored by Westchester Family.
