Do you want to be an artist, but struggle to draw stick figures? Are you completely hopeless with a paintbrush and palette? Don’t worry, readers — art is allowed to be messy, and creative minds are rarely tidy. In the words of Pablo Picasso, “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”
In case you haven’t seen it trending on social media, spin art is the perfect way to expose people of all ages to the process of art creation. This unique painting technique starts with a canvas strapped onto a spinning wheel. When spun, paint splatters out radially towards the sides of the canvas, creating signature works of art.
Intrigued? Spin Art Raleigh offers locals the perfect opportunity to explore their creative potential in a stress-free, fun environment.
“My passion lies in creating businesses with novel and fulfilling experiences for people of all ages,” said Owner Oleg Kechur. “I was inspired to open this space with the motto that everyone is an artist.”
In addition to spin art, Kechur’s business offers a splatter room experience, featuring a dark room with blue light, UV glow paint, and tools such as splatter sticks, paint guns, paint-filled syringes, and paint balloons.
“The splatter room is exactly how it sounds — a room where you go to splatter paint all over canvases, walls, and each other,” said Kechur.
In addition to being therapeutic, spinning and splattering paint appeals to the child in all of us. If you’ve ever had trouble “staying inside the lines,” this is a must-try.
“Spin art is popular because it is an art technique that anyone can employ, and it allows for people to get creative without the pressures of perfectionism, encouraging a state of flow,” said Kechur. “Every artwork comes out unique, and everyone finds their own way to spin art!”
