'What is Visual Literacy?' - looks at the various definitions and the components of visual literacy

These are the main areas of the website. There are sub-pages for some of the areas. Where websites are listed, I have kept them in alphabetical order to more easily find them. Any websites added after the initial creation of this site will have a date-stamp after the name of the website. For example, Flickr (3/10).
