#2. Back-to-School Clipart

by Barbara J. Feldman

Back-to-School Clipart Printable (** for premium members only)

To kick off this back-to-school season, I present these 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.

Bry-Back Manor: Back-to-School Clipart
Bry-Back Manor has three pages of School clipart that is free for personal use, along with one page of Graduation clipart. To navigate to the Graduation page, follow the Back-to-School link at the bottom of the page. They also have printable calendar templates, free kid-friendly fonts, handwriting worksheets and a collection of back-to-school poetry. “Red apples / Blue sky / Yellow busses / It’s September.”

Clip Art ‘n Crafts
From the creative mind of graphic artist Lee Hansen, Clip Art ‘n Crafts covers all the holidays, although there is not a section specifically dedicated to back-to-school. You are granted rights to use individual images (but not the whole collection) on personal, non-commercial websites or in the classroom. You might want to start in the Kids Stuff section. It features toys, games, kites, and other kid-friendly themes.

Discovery Education: Student Clipart
With original art in both color and black-and-white, and topics geared especially for students and teachers, Discovery School Clipart Gallery is sure to please. Although there is no search function, the collection of several hundred illustrations is organized into nineteen topics and is easy to peruse. If you’re looking for art to spruce up a web page, don’t miss the animations. This page is the Student collection. Use the dropdown menu in the upper-right hand corner to jump over to the Teacher or Technology topics.
