During this one-hour course, you will start to build your skills and confidence working with acrylic. The course covers tints, shades, gradation, underpainting, mixing with complementary colours, artists’ black and culminates in a small painting.

Once you have watched the professional development, you will be able to download a certificate that includes your name, the name of the course, and the duration. Although the video is 1 hour, the duration of the course is 2 hours to allow you time to complete the tasks within.

This course is ideal if you are new to teaching or at the start of your career and would like the opportunity to dedicate some time to improving your acrylic skills and knowledge.

The course includes a range of resources to support your learning, such as a worksheet, colour wheel, and my ‘good example’.

Materials Required: Acrylics in these specific colours: Cadmium Yellow and Red, Ultramarine, Emerald Green, Black, White and either Prussian or Phthalo Blue. A flat brush and a round brush. I’d also recommend your favourite hot beverage or tipple and a delicious snack. After all, art is meant to be fun.

If the video appears blurry, click the gear icon and check you have the quality set to the highest setting.

Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.

I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.

I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
