Artists in Schools CBL

Artists in Schools - Creative Body-based Learning (AIS CBL)

Carclew has a CBL package ready for delivery in 2020 and beyond!

Creative Body-Based Learning (CBL) is an umbrella term for the use of artistic processes to deepen and enhance learning experiences across the curriculum, with artists and teachers working together in the classroom.

Research shows that when children use their whole body to learn in a creative and active way, there has been improved interest in learning, school attendance and student attitude resulting in better test outcomes and increased student resilience.

Teachers are also recognising their own professional development and learning through CBL, discovering new techniques to engage with students of all abilities.

Carclew’s CBL Foundation Program provides one artist working with teachers to explore using the arts to teach Maths throughout South Australia.

If you are interested in a CBL artist working in your school, please contact:
