Atlanta’s first contemporary action painting experience, The Splatter Studio, will open a new space in Atlanta’s Virginia-Highland neighborhood this winter. Located at 792 North Highland Avenue Northeast, The Splatter Studio offers an immersive experience where guests can create art without worrying about the mess. Participants are supplied with protective gear so they can wield paint brushes, tools or their own two hands to splatter paint on a provided canvas or a Splatter Studio t-shirt. The Virginia-Highland location will join The Splatter Studio’s first, which opened at Ponce City Market in December 2019.
Howard Krinsky founded The Splatter Studio and also owns Binders Art Supplies & Frames, started by his father and uncle in 1955.
The 2500-square-foot studio will feature twelve painting stations, canvas-wrapped walls and floors, a paint bar and skylights. Inspired by the action painting art movement of the 1950s and ‘60s, The Splatter Studio is a creative place where everyone can explore their inner artist. Outside beverages will be permitted while painting, and all guests will leave with an official Splatter Studio Take Home Box.
“We’re beyond excited to open our newest location in historic Virginia-Highland,” said Krinsky in a press release. “My father and uncle opened Virginia-Highland’s beloved Moe’s and Joe’s in 1947, so the neighborhood holds a really special place in my heart. This is a full-circle moment, and we can’t wait to invite the community into The Splatter Studio!”
Guests of all ages and skill levels will be able to book a session in advance. Sessions will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. One-hour paint sessions will cost $55 per person and include everything needed for the experience. The Splatter Studio team will be on hand during each session to offer tips, tricks and suggestions on different tools and techniques. Additional canvases and cotton t-shirts will be available for purchase during the session.
The Splatter Studio will also host private parties. Designed for groups of friends, families or coworkers to have an uninterrupted studio experience for an hour-and-a-half. Guests will get access to all twelve paint stations in the studio plus paint, individual canvases, tools, protective gear and a 24×30” canvas for group collaboration.
The Splatter Studio hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday: 12pm-9pm, Wednesday and Friday: 1pm-10pm and Sunday: 1pm-8pm.
