For many years she was the Lecturer in Early Childhood/Primary Creative Arts (Visual Arts) at the Macquarie School of Education, Macquarie University, and coordinated Creative Arts units at undergraduate and postgraduate level for teacher education students studying in early childhood and primary programs.


Clare regularly supports practicing educators through professional development workshops in early childhood visual arts pedagogy.


She also consults to early childhood organisations, primary schools and the gallery and museum sector, supporting them in fostering young children’s creativity and visual arts, facilitating arts-rich early learning programs, and working effectively with creative approaches to pedagogy (including pedagogical documentation, integrated curriculum, inquiry based learning). 


Clare's research centres around young children's engagement with art, and creative approaches to pedagogy in early childhood settings, primary schools and art gallery/museum contexts.


Her current research is the Art & Wonder: Young Children and Contemporary Art research project, in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia, (MCA) exploring how very young children encounter contemporary art in a gallery space, and how rich pedagogy might emerge from these encounters. 

Dr Clare Britt is the author of Unearthing Why: Stories of Thinking and Learning with Children, co-authored with Jill MacLachlan, and Art & Wonder: Young Children and Contemporary Art, co-authored with Amanda Palmer. She has also written chapters for edited books. Her research is published in peer-reviewed journals and scholarly books, and she regularly presents at local and international conferences.
