WestchesterArts FREE ARTS DAY This Sunday-Come and Get Your Ya-Yas Out!

Home Stager with Owner, The Refreshed Home White Plains NY

Legend has it that when when Winston Churchill was advised to cut funding for arts, in order to help support the war effort, he replied 'than what is it we're fighting for?'. Historians debate the authenticity, but it's good enough for me, one of the reasons I am so fond of Churchill.

Art is good. It soothes, and makes you feel alive. It nourishes, inspires, and challenges. It can make you laugh, cry, ponder or react. But mostly art can make you happy.

This Sunday, December 2, Westchester Arts is sponsoring their annual FREE ARTS DAY. As good as art is for the soul, FREE ART is even bettwe!!



You and the kids can make bowls at Clay Art Center in Port Chester (LOVE you guys at CAC!!) , or jewelry...or beads at Westchester Arts Family Art Workshops in White Plains, or screen A Christmas Story at Jacob Burns in Pleasantville. Sample dance and fashion sketching lessons, or experience Play Theater Group workshop

For more grownup tastes, you can tour Caramoor, or the Historic Hudson Valley lamdmarks; visit almost every museum and cultural center from Mt. Vernon and the Pelhams to Peekskill and Purchase,

View The Marriage of Figaro in Pelham, even catch YCP's performance of Nora Ephron's play Love, Loss, and What I Wore. ALL FOR FREE. Seriously.


Your (inner) child will have a blast, and work through some serious ya-yas in this uplifting and creative format.

50 events, 21 locations! Click here now to see the entire listing, and plan your day. Some events might have limited class or audience size, so I'd call ahead and find out the logistics on your favorites. GO-you'll like yourself a lot for it!

Our spaces affect us profoundly...and so many other parts in our life fall into place when our spaces and possessions serve us in the best way they can. But getting there is much more than a pursuit of pleasing aesthetics.


Decorating and Staging are different, but much of the skill sets overlap, and each creates unique solutions that considers the needs, goals, resources, expectations, hopes and dreams of each client.

Bettering Westchester, Putnam and lower Fairfield counties since 1981, The Refreshed Home works collaboratively, and brings a thoughtful approach to the creative process. Proud to make a difference, as well as make a living. Offering specialty services such as remote and buyer consults, listing photo/video styling, guided and accompanied shopping, and accessory rental. We get in, get out, and you get on with your life.  Talk to me TODAY about how we can better your space!

Marie, I don't know if Churchill said that or not, but I agree with the statement..."then what are we fighting for?"

Gotta have art, Nick! It elevates and betters the atmosphere, the conversation, and civilization as a whole. This was an awesome event!
