This chapter focuses on the use of visual creative arts within undergraduate teaching and assessment, drawing on a range of techniques associated with intervention design and evaluation research. As part of an applied psychology course, students were required to design a methodologically robust while creative intervention and/or evaluation targeted at a specific community population. The students produced a body of theoretically situated creative interventions including board games and theatrical interpretations. The chapter explores the challenges faced by both the students and staff. The impact of the project is discussed in the context of student participation, achievement and the development of graduate employability skills.
