Tamra and I met in May of 2016 where our friendship was instant. We share many interests and are constantly in touch. One thing we both have in common is our love for our pets. So, what better way to celebrate one year of an awesome friendship than by painting our little guys at Muse paint bar in Providence. It would be a very suiting first blog post!
My first impression of Muse was love at first sight. There wasn’t an inch of the place that wasn’t covered in paint. If there is one thing I’m good at it would be making a mess. There were many tables and tons of space for large classes. Some tables were prepped for standing and some for sitting. Each spot was set with 5 different brushes, and an array of paint colors, paper towels, and water. Canvases were started with a loose sketch of all the pets that were to be painted. The animals varied from cats and dogs to horses and butterflies.
This particular class was taught a little differently than other paint classes I’ve attended in the past. The instructors were helpful and knowledgeable. The class was taught in a less structured format due to the varying images being painted. When guests are all painting the same portrait there’s more instruction per step. The pet painting class was about three hours in length and I still didn’t have time to finish my fur child.
Other things to know about Muse would include parking, food, and drinks. Although they don’t have their own parking lot, there is an hourly lot across the street as well as metered street parking (free on Sundays). Muse had a small menu for food that clearly marked which items were vegetarian or vegan and which weren’t. They offered a variety of booze too! If you are looking to find out more info, they have a calendar on their website. Their calendar shows what step by step paintings they offer as well as the more freestyle ones like we did.
Check out the pics of our lovely pets we painted. Tamra painted a picture of her handsome cat, Parker. Tamra adopted Parker and his sister Allie about five years ago. Parker is quite the Mama’s boy and they are very attached to one another. I adopted Obi about 2 1/2 years ago. He can be quite the trouble maker, but I can’t picture life without him. He has the softest ears and his feet smell delicious.
The night was a blast and I’d highly recommend it there. It’s perfect for a date, going out with a few friends, or even for larger, private events like a bachelorette party. The best part is you get to hang your artwork up at home, and remember the experience forever!
