Art Education and Cognition Websites

The title links to Cybrary Man's Educational Web Sites:
The internet catalogue for students, teachers, administrators & parents.
Over 20,000 relevant links personally selected by an educator/author with over 30 years of experience.
This is very topical for me, as I have been thinking and talking about the cognitive benefits of learning through the visual arts! See this link for more regarding brain cognition and art.
Also: Milbrandt, Felts, Richards & Abghari (2004) from " Teaching to learn: A constructivist approach to shared responsibility"
Overview: "Cognitive theory has been found to support the traditional approach to teaching a comprehensive art study program using the constructivist approach...Students actively engage creatively in art production & utilize cognitive skills of analysis, interpretation, problem solving, & construction of meaning called cognitive divergence...Students integrate fragmented information into previous stored information, Efland calls flexible cognition."
