St. Patrick’s Day Clipart Printable (** for premium members only)
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, I present you five free clipart sites. But first a couple of ground rules. One, please respect common clipart etiquette and do not hot link directly to these images. Instead, always download images to your computer and then upload them to your own web server or free image hosting account. Two, although I have included a brief summary of each site’s terms of service, be sure to look at each one more closely because it’s impossible for me to accurately cover all the details in this short space.
Clip Art ‘n Crafts: Free Irish Clip Art
From the creative mind of graphic artist Lee Hansen, Clip Art ‘n Crafts covers all the holidays, including this excellent collection of original St. Patrick’s Day artwork. You are granted rights to use individual images (but not the whole collection) on personal, non-commercial websites or in the classroom. “St. Patrick’s Day crafting is easy with these free Irish graphics and clip art orders. You’ll find plenty of green and orange with shamrocks, leprechauns, doves for peace, ribbons, Irish blessings and pots of gold at the end of the St. Patrick’s day rainbow.”
Ireland First: Irish Clipart Archive
With 264 Irish-themed images, the Ireland First collection is the largest of today’s St. Patrick’s Day collections. All the clipart is “royalty free and may be saved/downloaded and printed/used freely by anyone in any way.” Enjoy the shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows, Irish hats, and page borders. Note that this page includes images of beer, so parents and teachers will need to use discretion.
Kaboose: St. Patrick’s Day Kids’ Clip Art
This small collection of St. Patrick’s Day clipart is of excellent quality. “They are optimized to be small in size with transparent backgrounds, so you can use them on any color pages.” The images include lots of teddy bears, children “wearing the green,” leprechauns and shamrocks. The only limitation on usage that I could find was the stipulation not to include these graphics in any other clipart collections.
