The PGO is so fortunate to be able to co-host this evening with Teri in the beautiful new AmherstWorks space at 11 Amity Street in downtown Amherst. #artcontinues events are BYOB (Bring Your Own Beverage); glassware is provided. Light snacks and desserts will be available with donations encouraged. All FUNdraising profit from ticket sales and donations will support curriculum and classroom needs at Fort River. 

#artcontinues is a labor of love that began in 2013, after Teri Magner retired from teaching art in the Amherst schools. Teri promotes art learning for all ages and all skill levels and also offers private painting or drawing events and fundraisers in the Pioneer Valley. You can schedule your own private event NOW!
