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.

Let’s enjoy summer just a little longer with resident artist, Christine Miller, at her ever-popular adult paint night. Anyone who has attended one will tell you, not only is it a night out filled with laughs and good people, but you get an art lesson, too!

We will work in pastels and acrylic paints on canvas with step by step guidance in creating this mouthwatering watermelon still life! We will address composition, color, tone, texture and line as we sketch out then paint our masterpiece!

Christine’s classes are great for adults of all ages and artistic abilities (yes, even you, the one who thinks they can’t paint, this class is perfect for you! You’ll LOVE it!).

Cost: $35 per person; includes all materials.
Spaces fill up fast.

These nights out have turned into a potluck of sorts. Please feel free to bring a dish and your favorite beverage for yourself or to share with the class. We will have a social 1/2-hour from 6:00-6:30 to enjoy your drinks and snacks and to get to know others in the class. Christine will start her portion of the evening at 6:30.
