WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Combining painting instruction with a wine bar, Muse Paintbar has opened for classes at the company’s first Westchester location at 84 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains.
Designed for artists and nonartists of all ages and skill levels, Muse Paintbar is place for friends to learn, laugh, relax and celebrate life’s milestones with skilled painting instructors in a warm and inviting space. Muse is managed by Stan Finch, president and co-founder, Vanessa Leigh, co-founder and lead artist, and is run in cooperation with artists from the Westchester area.
“Muse allows us to share our passion and create art in a fun, relaxed atmosphere,” said Leigh. “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 offers options for birthdays, bachelorette parties, and other special events. Family art sessions are also offered two to three times per month and feature a painting that the whole family can participate in.
To participate, guests simply visit musepaintbar.com , click on White Plains’ page and scroll through the online calendar to view each evening’s one or two different paintings, and register online. Classes average $35 per person, but prices may vary for fundraisers, special events or special sessions. The company donates 5 percent of profits to local causes and partners with local suppliers.
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 food, wine and beer. Muse Paintbar is open to the public and to private parties on a space available basis.
Reservations are suggested, as sessions sell out quickly. Muse also offers gift certificates, private instruction and private party paintings geared toward the company or guest(s) of honor.
