THE society enjoyed a very entertaining and informative evening on Friday, June 17, when professional artist Hashim Akib came to give a demonstration on painting a portrait in acrylics.
He painted from life and held the members’ undivided attention for the two hours while he produced a wonderful piece of art which earned him both admiration and applause.
Hashim has won many awards for his paintings and lists many large organisations amongst his clients for illustrative work.
Thurrock Art Society meets every Friday evening during term time at Thurrock Adult Community College, in Grays.
