Bushy Hill Not Your Typical Paint Night and Art Class

Bushy Hill presents Christine Miller and the Bushy Hill “Not Your Typical Paint Night and Art Class”. Christine is a continually evolving self-taught artist whose work exudes bold bursts of color, vivid textual elements, and splashes of simple brush strokes. Her paintings have been representational, gradually morphing into her now freely abstract touches of nature. She credits this inspirational transformation from her children’s boundless, inventive energies. “Art should be fun! It should be playful!”

Christine resides in Chester, CT with her husband and their five children. Many of her pieces are in private collections and galleries on the shoreline. When you register for a Bushy Hill “Not Your Typical Paint Night and Art Class”, you will have the opportunity to recreate your own version of Christine’s original paintings with her expertise and guidance while also relaxing and enjoying your time out with friends and/or family.
