Aspire Series Continues with Painters Aaron and Alan Hicks

Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– This Saturday, February 7th, two talented painters, Aaron and Alan Hicks, will host a free workshop.

Alan and Aaron Hicks are identical twin brothers from Chicago, Illinois. Not only do they share the same facial features, but the same unique talent as well.

Since the age of eight, the twins shared an intense desire to express their creativity through drawing. Over time, what began as a journey of self-expression through art became a bona fide passion.

As the twins matured, the same passion that drove them to create artistically also inspired them to hone their skills within an academic environment. Thus, Alan and Aaron began to further their education and their talent at the University of Illinois-Chicago. In 1985, their perseverance and dedication paid off; the twins received Bachelor of Arts degrees in Bio communications/Medical Illustrations from the University of Illinois.

Today, they continue to stretch themselves as artists. Their works has been exhibited throughout the country and in numerous publications, such as Ebony, Jet, and Upscale Magazine.
