You don’t have to be an artist to pick up a paintbrush and create something beautiful. Muse Paintbar recently opened a new studio at the Hingham Shipyard. Operated by artist Vanessa Lee and her business partner Stan Finch, the new studio will host painting workshops for individuals as well as private parties, such as birthdays, charity fundraisers and girls’ nights out. Muse provides the materials, and skilled local artists provide hands-on instruction, leading participants through the steps needed to recreate paintings like a pro.
The studio décor reflects an appreciation for sustainable products. All the tables are made from recycled barn board from Maine and the exposed brick walls were made using materials from old mills in Massachusetts. The paint bar will also offer a full selection of wine, beer and tapas, for those who want to further nourish their creativity. No matter a person’s skill level, everyone leaves an artist—with a painting to prove it. 15 Shipyard Dr., Suite 1C, 781-790-4200, www.musepaintbar.com
