Embrace your inner artist and sling some paint at this East Texas splatter room

Make your whole body the canvas at Paint Slingers!

If you’re looking for a place to let your inner artist run wild, Paint Slingers in Longview is the perfect spot for you! This fun-filled space is where the young and young-at-heart can express themselves while creating something unique.

“I told my husband, I said ‘It would be really fun to have a splatter room.’ And he’s like, ‘Well, what is that?’ And so, I had seen some videos of people doing this in like bigger cities, Austin and Dallas and stuff like that,” said Owner Shelbie DuVall. “So this year(2023), my friend was like, ‘Hey, I have a spot, a building open if you want to lease it out.’ And I was like, ‘Sure, we’re going to mess it up.’”

The concept behind Paint Slingers is easy - you enter a room, suit up in protective gear (if you want!), and let loose with paint. And when we say let loose, we mean it! DuVall encourages visitors to get as wild as they want, slinging paint and making a mess. But don’t worry - you don’t have to end up covered head to toe in paint if you don’t want to. There are goggles, ponchos, and shoe coverings available. If you don’t wish to wear the gear, make sure you’re wearing clothes that are ready to be covered in paint! They are also white Paint Slingers shirts to purchase that you can use as a canvas when you go in the splatter room.

Each person who is headed into the splatter room receives an 11x14 canvas, fives colors of paint, and 30 minutes to go wild! Groups can be up to 15 people at a time, of course the smaller the person, the easier it is to fit in the room, for adults it is closer to 7 at a time. YOU CANNOT BRING YOUR OWN PAINT FOR THIS.

Setup inside the splatter room is also a ring light for those who want to film videos, such as for TikTok, while embracing your creativity.

Time in the splatter room is available by appointment only. They are open Tuesday-Thursday from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM & Friday-Saturday from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM. Paint Slingers is located at 2902 Gilmer Road Suite B in Longview, TX.

Aside from the splatter room, Paint Slingers also provides a platform for local artists to sell their work. You can admire their paintings in the lobby and can purchase the artwork you love.
