Albany Oregon is home to one of the most unique art studios in the US. Splatter Box is the one and only paint throwing studio currently in existence, and it should be on your Oregon bucket list!
Your trip to Splatter Box is meant to break all artistic stereotypes one splatter at a time. If you want to finger paint, you can. If you want to use a brush, or your hair, or dump paint out of a cup onto your canvas, it's all up to you.
"At our studio everything is a canvas, especially the people," said Splatter Box Owner Laura Ellis. "You can paint on walls, create designs on each other, and [paint on canvases]. Many parties turn into a paint fight and [it's] a blast."

At the studio you'll be using high quality pain that glows bright in the black light of the room, allowing you to create vibrant designs.
You will get messy at Splatter Box, but there are caps, ponchos, and shoe covers for $1 each to help keep your clothes clean. The paint will most likely not stain fabric, and definitely will not stain your skin or hair. You should expect it to wash off easily in the shower once you're home.
If you're worried about valuables like your glasses or purse getting paint on it, you can use one of the lockers to store valuables at no extra cost.
