Nobody does Wine & Painting like we do!

#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. 

Eat. Drink. Paint.

Teri, along with Sue Crutch, currently host monthly public events at AMHERSTWORKS, as well as private parties and fundraisers there, and at many other locations in the Amherst area and the Pioneer Valley.

We are so excited that "art continues"!

Contact us to schedule a private party for friends, family and/or colleagues!  We have many exciting spaces available for events, depending on size and occasion!

Enjoy a 5% discount at Russell’s Liquors when purchasing your beverage for one of our BYOB events! 


  From 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., our events offer everyone, of every ability, the chance to paint a masterpiece!  No prior painting experience is required.

$30.00 includes all instruction, materials & supplies. Paint a stretched canvas (included) or upgrade to a canvas tote bag with a printed picture frame ($12), or a bib apron with a printed picture frame ($14).

Come discover your artistic ability and learn about the artist of the night and their particular style, as you enjoy the camaraderie from the many you will meet!

What Past Painters Have To Say...

Recent Events

The calm before the storm...                    on Feb. 6th, 2018 at AmherstWorks, we painted these amazing snow covered birch trees as part of WinterFest Amherst!  Breathtaking!

Wed., January 24th, 2018, was our one year anniversary of events held at AmherstWorks!  (Have you been there yet?)  It's a fabulous space full of creative people, and we "join the party" once a month!  This time it was Monet's The Magpie! (And there was a birthday celebration in the group!)

Wed., Dec. 6th was our last event of 2017!  Thiebaud's 3 Donuts or his Giftbox paintings were our inspiration.  It was a fantastic night of painting!  Perseverance and pay off!  (And then, doughnuts to eat!)

Wed., Nov. 15th featured Van Gogh's Crown Fritillaries in a Copper Vase -- Great crowd -- metallic paints -- amazing results!

On Wed., Oct. 18th, it was a perfect pairing!  We celebrated the colors of the season with O'Keeffe's Autumn Leaves.  

Wed.,  August 16th, at AmherstWorks — O’Keeffe’s Chama River -- a perfect  summer night!

Join the fun!


Private parties are easily arranged. With a minimum of 10 participants and a maximum of 80, 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 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!

You choose the date, and the painting from #artcontinues’ extensive collection.  We provide all instruction, equipment and supplies.


Recent Private Events

 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!

We have loved hosting multiple #artcontinues events in this Amherst College space with it's outstanding light!

On March 9th, at AmherstWorks, we hosted a (BYOB) Fundraiser for the Fort River School PGO — the featured painting was Klimt’s Forest of Beech Trees and it was a great evening!

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 their 5/8 fundraiser was Starry Night!

On January 18th, 2018 we broke our record for number of painters at any one event (76), with a private party at UMass for RA's as they begin a new semester!

Office parties are the best!  (We are often called back for repeat events!)  This was our 2nd time at Vision Source of Amherst!  (Everyone loves these trees!)
