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.

Have you ever painted with us at one of our #artcontinues events?  If so, and you would like to exhibit your painting(s), please email (below)!  We will begin collecting paintings for the exhibit on May 20th!

We are planning to show your paintings, at AmherstWorks, on Thursday, June 7th, from 5:00pm-8:00pm, in conjunction with Amherst's Arts Night Plus!  Please contact us and we will display your work!  And please come and enjoy your show with all of the other artists!  We can hardly wait!  


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).

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!)

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!

And, look for us again, at the conference, in August 2018!

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

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.

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 5/23/2018 fundraiser was Monet's Path to Pourville.


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!)
