Personal profile


Clare Britt is the Lecturer in Early Childhood/Primary Creative Arts (Visual Arts) at the Department of Educational Studies, Macquarie University.


Clare coordinates Creative Arts units at undergraduate (ECH319 and ECH454) and postgraduate (ECED828) level for teacher education students studying in early childhood and primary programs. She also regularly supports practicing educators through professional development workshops in early childhood visual arts pedagogy.


Clare’s research centres around creative approaches to pedagogy in both formal and informal contexts. Her work draws on poststructural theory, and arts-informed and emergent research methodologies in understanding the complexities of experiences and perspectives of children, families and teachers in these places of learning. Her research is published in peer-reviewed journals and scholarly books, and she regularly presents at local and international conferences. Clare's work has a special focus on the role of the arts in foregrounding children's own perspectives in both research and learning contexts. Her current research is in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art, exploring how very young children encounter contemporary art in a gallery space, and how rich pedagogy might emerge from these encounters.
