#artcontinues, led by 37-year veteran art teacher Teri Magner, promotes art learning for all ages in the Amherst area. We currently offer Wine & Painting Events for all skill levels and private painting or drawing lessons, events and fundraisers in the Pioneer Valley.
#artcontinues is a labor of love that began in 2013, after Teri Magner retired from teaching art in the Amherst schools.
*Paint a stretched canvas (included) or upgrade to a canvas tote bag with a printed picture frame (additional $12 charge), or a bib apron with a printed picture frame (additonal $14).

Private parties are easily arranged. With a minimum of 10 participants and a maximum of 45, you can celebrate any event (birthday, anniversary, etc.,) or provide an opportunity to share this social and enjoyable new art experience with your book group, office staff, or other colleagues, professionals and friends. We have hosted all of the above, as well as “going away parties”, “memorial/remembrance events” and FUNDRAISERS! Everyone takes away their own exceptional painting!
#artcontinues Wine & Painting parties can be hosted at a variety of locations. We travel to private homes, offices, & businesses for some “on the spot” team building! There are also spaces available for rent-for-your-event at AmherstWorks, Bistro 63 At The Monkey Bar, and other local venues!
Group and party packages are available for gatherings with co-workers and friends! Book your date now! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 413-650-2854.
The #artcontinues Wine & Painting event at the MTA Conference at UMass, Amherst in 2016 was a great success! So, we were there again, on Aug. 1st, 2017! (Please send me some of your group pics, MTA members!)
The #artcontinues Pease Keepers Against Cancer Relay Team Fundraisers at Atkins Farms Country Market are always an amazing success! With great refreshments and wine tastings — it is always a win-win for all! The painting for the 5/8 fundraiser was Starry Night!
Teri’s #artcontinues Wine & Painting classes are like no other. You won’t just duplicate some hotel painting — you’ll be learning from the masters of art history, and learning about them at the same time. Despite the ambitious subject material, Teri leads her classes with accessibility and fun. As a complete beginner, I wasn’t intimidated at all. The creative extras like metallic paints and canvas bags to paint on are just the icing on top! For a fabulous night out, I’d recommend Teri”s classes to anyone.”
“If you want a relaxing night out with friends or by yourself, try Teri’s wine and painting. You won’t be disappointed — Teri brings out the talent you never knew you had. It’s a “feel good” night out! Classy painting with a knowledgeable instructor.”
“Teri Magner’s Wine & Painting classes gave me the confidence to pick up a paint brush and create images that I never would have believed that I could accomplish. The instruction provided me with learning that I had not experienced before. The social aspect of the classes added to the joy of the painting!”
Rhonda Frankel Fein
“Other wine & painting classes may have wine and painting supplies, but what they lack is Teri. Her tried and true teaching methods are simply the best!”
“I’m no Van Gogh, but with Teri’s guidance, I have found myself creating art that I never imagined I could. And the wine and good company make the classes not only constructive, but fun!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed painting with Teri Magner! She has a way of breaking paintings down in an understandable way so that everyone experiences success. Her helpful hints and sincere praise make everyone feel great about their work!”
I am currently offering individual and small group adult painting and drawing lessons. Email me with requests and any questions — email@example.com.
Series sessions of art lessons for young artists were unfortunately, put on hold. A location dilemma caused this setback. New locations for student lessons continue to be explored.
I am keeping track of those interested. Please continue to contact me with your child’s age, interest, and best day/time for art lessons, and for more information — firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you interested in drawing but have never had any training? A brand new group experience called “Wine & Line” might be just what you need. Contact me for more information.
Have you ever wanted to learn the art of printmaking? I have been asked to organize a few group sessions for newly interested printmakers — a fantastic way to give a gift of your art to multiple friends and family! Contact me for those details. (Should we call that one Prosecco & Printmaking?)
