View our Workshop Terms & Conditions

This is an informative acrylic painting workshop, for those who are interested in colours and mark-making. Learn how to use large brushes and develop a bold approach to painting. You will paint a variety of subjects with less emphasis on obsessive drawing. Demonstrations and one to one guidance will be provided, and the course is suitable for anyone with an open mind. Photographic reference will be provided on the day but feel free to bring your own photos.

There will be a short practical demonstration, including intro to acrylics, in the morning and after lunch. Students will also have the opportunity to tackle two paintings during the day to fully explore new techniques.

Working as an illustrator in the UK for over 15 years, Hashim gained valuable experience in developing a backbone of drawing, conceptual ideas and various painting techniques. His illustration client list varied from New Yorker magazine, newspapers such as The Times, Daily Express, Daily Mail, Time magazine, ad campaigns for Smirnoff, Esso and a stamp for The Royal Mail. Throughout his career Hashim has won many awards; including in 2009 the SAA (Society of All Artists) Artist of the Year, having won the Professional title in 2005 and 2007. He worked with the art manufacturer Daler Rowney in their relaunch of the System 3 Acrylic range producing paintings for the ad campaign and demonstrating the versatility of the paint at various events and on live television. His first book entitled ‘Vibrant Acrylics’ was published by Search Press in 2012 which has now been translated into French, German, Italian and Dutch and includes a companion DVD of the same name. He has been featured in various art publications including The Artist, Pratique des Arts, Art of England and is a regularly contributor to the Artists and Illustrators magazine. More recently Hashim has been featured in a publication entitled ‘Painting in Acrylics; The Indispensable Guide’, Who’s, Who in Art and co authored ‘ Artists Painting Techniques’ published by Dorling Kindersley in 2016. A new book on ‘Painting Urban and Cityscapes’ will be available in 2017 published by Crowood Press.
