What Past Painters Have To Say...

Event Pics!-- We love these great memories!

Wed., July 18th, 2018 at AmherstWorks  was another "painting choice" event -- cool summer palettes in both O'Keeffe's From the Lake, No. 1 and Cezanne's Blue Landscape.  No favorite here, both choices proved to be amazing!

Wed., June 20th, 2018 was an exciting evening -- with lots of choices for color in the blossoming trees of Monet's Le Printemps!

Wed., May 16th, 2018 featured Matisse's Goldfish!  Great crowd -- amazing results!

Wed.,  March 21st, 2018 was our very first Manet -- Moss Roses in a Vase --a perfect entry to spring!  Wow!  Exceptional canvas paintings and tote bags and aprons!

On Thursday, Dec. 6th, 2018 The Powerhouse at Amherst College was filled with Georgia O'Keeffe's Poppies — 50 participants!

Manet’s Lilacs were the focus of our fabulous December 5th painting event at AmherstWorks!

Join the fun!

 

Private parties are easily arranged. With a minimum of 10 participants and a maximum of 100, 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!

 
“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

 #artcontinues Wine & Painting events at  the MTA Conferences at UMass, Amherst in August 2016, August 2017 and August 7th, 2018 were great successes! 

We've had three consecutive years of painting with fantastic teachers from all over the state! 

The Casey's Cruisers' ALS Fundraiser at Atkins Farms Country Market was an awesome success! With great  refreshments and great paintings — it was a win-win for all!  The painting for this May 23, 2018 fundraiser was Monet's Path to Pourville.

 

On April 3rd, 2018, we hosted a private party (combined with sign-ups from others interested) at Bistro 63/Monkey Bar.  Great food -- great drinks & great painters!                                                We like it that way! EAT.  DRINK.  PAINT.

On January 18th, 2018 we broke our record at any one event (86), at UMASS with RA's as they began a new semester! On August 28th, 2018 we hosted another successful UMASS event -- for RA's! We almost broke our newest record of 96, with close to 100 painters!
