Art-based activities are increasingly being regarded as an accessible and engaging way to understand the human body and its processes. Such activities include body painting (both regular and ultraviolet [UV]), clay and materials-based modelling and drawing-focused activities. Integrating art-based approaches into curricula can offer many benefits and are often cost-effective ways to engage students, and improve on clinical acumen and visual understanding of the body. In this chapter, we will introduce various art-based visualisation methods, suggested uses for their integration into curricula, as well as the associated pros and cons of each, in turn.
