TRIBECA — Need some help getting those creative juices flowing? A new TriBeCa bar’s menu of wine, beer, small bites — and paint, may just do the trick.

Muse Paintbar, which lets patrons take guided art classes while imbibing and snacking, is slated to open by September, owners said at a Community Board 1 meeting Wednesday night.

Customers are given all the tools they need — paint, brushes, canvass and easels — to create their work of art, and no prior painting experience is needed.

The expansive 329 Greenwich St. bar, which has room for more than 100 people, will take over the space of failed restaurant Telepan Local.

The bar will host painting sessions each week, open to whoever wants to participate, and they also run private events, like birthday parties, work functions or fundraisers.

This is Muse’s first NYC location, but they have seven other spots nationally, including in Portland, Oregon.

Sessions, which last two and a half hours, are about $35. Drinks and food are extra.

Teachers take you step by step through the process, according to Muse's website.

“Trained artists will guide you, brushstroke by brushstroke, from blank canvas to masterpiece,” Muse’s website says. “Relax. You needn’t an ounce of artistic skill.”
