Relax and enjoy the experience at Muse!
Whether you are looking for a fun night out with friends or a great date night, Muse is a great way to enjoy your evening.
Grab a drink, some food and a seat at one of the easels and bring out the inner artist in you.
Muse combines professional painting instruction from local artists (no art experience needed) with an upscale wine & tapas bar experience.
“After sign-up, guests simply need to show up for fun. Muse Paintbar provides expert instructors, acrylic paints, a series of brushes and a canvas, and an apron. Guests do not need any artistic background or skill, as instructors guide them stroke by stroke from blank canvas to finished masterpiece, ready to display or gift. While painting, guests can also enjoy a great selection of food, wine and beer.”
Last night, we painted a Celestial Seascape taught by Karen. Whenever you begin a painting you hope it will look like the original inspiration.
As you sit back and enjoy the company you bring in this relaxing atmosphere you will see how the painting gradually comes to life.
You will be so happy with the end result and as you look around the room everyone’s painting looks different but, the original inspiration you can clearly see in everyone’s paintings. You can do this and we highly recommend attending a paint night and enjoying all that Muse Paintbar has to offer.
Muse was co-founded by Stan Finch in December 2012 and is run in cooperation with local artists. Now with 23 locations throughout New England, the Mid-Atlantic and the Tri-State area – including three in Long Island, Muse has found painting and wine to be a perfect pairing. “Muse allows us to share our passion and create art in a fun, relaxed atmosphere,” said Finch. “Art can be intimidating, but we break down barriers by providing simple directions that allow people to gain confidence. By the end of the session, they’ve had fun and can take home an original work of art.”
Muse Paintbar is ideal for after-work relaxation, a girls’ night out, a birthday or bachelorette party, corporate team building, or even a first date. Couples’ paintings, where artists will guide you and your special someone through a joint painting and you will take home two canvases to hang side-by-side, also make Muse the perfect spot to celebrate a recent anniversary or a romantic date night. Family art sessions are also offered 2-3 times per month and feature a painting that the whole family can participate in. Muse also offers special ‘Paint Your Pet’ sessions where guests sign-up and send in a photo of their furry friend prior to the session. The Muse artists will have a sketch of each guest’s pet waiting for them when they arrive, ready to be painted.
