Every teacher loves to use clip-art – in all sorts of teaching resources.
Here, at Resource Angel, we’re lucky enough to have a talented team member to produce our clip-art ( including the front covers of our resource packs!)
However, if you don’t have the talent, time or know-how to create your own clipart then don’t despair! We’ve gathered 35 – Yes, 35 – websites that either provide you with free downloadable clip-art or point you to other websites where you can easily download good quality clip-art files.
We’ve visited each and every one of these links and can report that at the time of this blog post being published ALL of the links worked and lead directly to the page as described.
We’ve left the original web address in each entry just in case you need to go to the front page of the link!
We recommend you visit these sites and download clip-art to your heart’s content!
Enjoy your exploration!
