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:

CBL utilises active and arts-based approaches to engage primary school students in learning the maths curriculum. Since 2015, the CBL program has involved 9 professional teaching artists working in 19 schools with 52 teachers and engaging 750 young people.
The CBL Project is a partner project led by Carclew, University of South Australia, The Department of Education and Child Development and was initiated by the ART Committee.
If you or your organisation is interested in supporting arts-based approaches to engage primary school students in learning maths, we welcome you to get in touch to discuss further.
