SCARSDALE, N.Y. – Painting with a Twist, a place for friends coming together to paint, opened this month at 365 Central Park Ave. in the Archway Plaza.
The franchise is among the fastest growing the in the country and provides guests with a “unique getaway through art.”

The paintings vary from landscapes, abstracts and cityscapes, to creative renderings of animals, iconic buildings and florals.
The Scarsdale shop is owned by Westchester native Lauren Weixeldorfer and Painting with a Twist Co-Founders Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney.
“I’m thrilled to be opening Scarsdale’s first Painting with a Twist studio and can’t wait to provide guests with a fun night out, a chance to escape from reality and an opportunity to give back to our local community,” Weixeldorfer said. “We want to provide a place where people can come together to create memorable pieces of artwork.”
