Prepare to have all your preconceptions of painting with Acrylics changed as you discover the full potential of this most versatile medium. There will be lots of new ideas, techniques and approaches to explore. Hashim will guide you every step of the way with the opportunity for one to one tuition. After the course you will never see acrylics in the same dull light again, because they’ll be ‘Vibrant Acrylics’! The course is suitable for anyone, but it is essential to come along with an open mind as many of the ideas break with traditional painting methods. About the Artist: Working as an illustrator for over 15 years, Hashim gained valuable experience in developing a backbone of drawing, conceptual ideas and painting techniques. His client list varies from The Times, Daily Express, Daily Mail, Time magazine, an ad campaign for Smirnoff and a stamp for The Royal Mail. Throughout his career Hashim has won many awards; most recently the 2009 SAA (Society of All Artists) Artist of the Year. Over the last few years he has been keen to explore his own ideas and evoke a greater emotional response in his paintings. Contrasting flecks of colour, heavy textural paint and expressive brush strokes combine to bring greater depth and mood to each painting.
