#artcontinues Art learning for all ages with Teri Magner


#artcontinues with Teri Magner


#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.

 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!)


Here’s what one conference participant had to say…            
           “I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful night ! I loved the information about Van Gogh, the relaxed and fun atmosphere, your patience, and the time you took to help those of us that needed it. I have never had the opportunity to take any art classes so I felt a little apprehensive about not knowing what to do but you made it such a fantastic experience!                       
Keep up the great work!!!”
         Karen Howes,   MTA Bourne Representative

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.”

                                                                                                              Alexandra Martines

“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.”

Dianna Spaulding

“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!”

Jane Mellor

“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!”

Abbie Gulliver

“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!”

                  Stephen  Lott

Art Lessons

I am currently offering individual and small group adult painting and drawing lessons.  Email me with requests and any questions — tmagner.art@gmail.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 — tmagner.art@gmail.com.


Future Events

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?)
