This page has a collection of links from various articles I've stumbled across, for reference in classes I teach.
The Science of Drawing and Memory (Edutopea.com Article, on how drawing the concept is twice as beneficial as either reading or writing about one.).
Pop Art Lesson (Grid painting of Mona Lisa, etc.)
Lesson Idea: Quotes on Reading (memes and/or murals): Stand-alone lesson in Digital Art meme's like the one you had planned for the mural series at CMPA? Portrait of the person plus the quote, (plus some background image of the concept conveyed?).
