Free Clip Art for Teachers

Free Clip Art for Classroom Use, Royalty free graphics,

More and more teachers are scavenging the web, searching for free clip art for classroom use. Here's my list of websites that offer free clip art that teachers can use:

Free Clip art for Teachers
Another great place to find clip art for teachers is at Graphics from the Pond. They have the cutest borders and themes to put quality cuteness into whatever you make - like name tags, Valentine's Day Cards, etc. Their clip art collection also has priced items but you can click here for the free ones. And the host site Teachers pay Teachers has a ton of free clip art that you must check out! Just click on this link to see the search I did on 'free pencil clip art' and see how many cute pencil clip art I found. What ever you need, just type it in the search bar at the top of the TpT page and you will have lot of clip art to choose from.

Free Clip art for TeachersA friend of mine recently found this site  - Sweet Clip Art - and I'm really glad to see that all of the graphics here are free vector graphics! They have many categories of images to choose from, like education, animals, sports, holidays, borders, etc.
Free Clip art for TeachersThis free site - My Cute Graphics - is created specifically for teachers and bloggers, so you should be able to narrow your search in no time to find what you need for you classroom D.I.Y. It also has free coloring pages! Did I mention that these collections are really cute? So cute!

I also use http://www.wpclipart.com/ as a free graphic resource which is completely royalty free. Sometimes it will have images of things other places will not.

I also forgot to add that Sweet Clip Art does state in its policy that its graphics cannot be used in things that are for sale just so fellow Teachers Pay Teachers sellers are aware.

So are all the clip art sites mentioned above free for commercial use except Sweet Clip Art?

Teacher Nyla said...

Pat- the only free one that you can use for commercial use is Microsoft's Clip Art as long as the clip art used does not take up more than 70% of your product. The Graphics by 'Graphics from the Pond' allows for commercial use of their graphics - both the free and the priced graphics.

Thanks for your help!

Teacher Nyla said...

Patti, it looks like (for now) you'll have to right click on the clip art then save it. I see no other way (at the moment).

Thank you!!! I am new to TpT. Just created 6 products for Speech-Language Pathologists using Microsoft clip art. I started to panic about my legal right to use it and thought I would have to delete my products.

Male primary teachers are desperately needed in primary schools. The job however, can be perceived as one not suitable for men. This perception is outdated and inaccurate and puts a lot of potentially great Male Primary Teachers off from joining the profession.

I want to recommend a new clip art site http://www.clipartlord.com which has lots of free high quality clip art.

Nicole Loftis said...

I just looked at the My Cute Graphics terms of use, because her graphics are very cute :), and she specifically states that you CAN use her graphics on TPT if you credit her somewhere on the product. Yay!!!!

Becky said...

I was told personally by Microsoft that none of their clip art can be used for profit, so beware of using it to sell.

Tiffany said...

Thank you for this information! It was really helpful! I had read somewhere that you can't use Microsoft Clip Art...I have a ton of stuff where I use it and I'm remaking all of it. I didn't think that you could use their fonts either? Has anyone else heard this??

About Me

My Photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
