The Buzz column in the April 2010 issue in School Library Journal notes a great clip art resource that is new to me: The Open Clip Art Library. It has thousands of clip art images that are free to download and can be used for any purpose. And if you are an arty type, you are encouraged to upload images to share with all. It's a pretty great resource, especially for folks using Open Office or looking to shake up the usual clip art they rely on. The categories are a little broad and it may not be easy to get just what you need quickly but it really has an amazing variety of stuff to browse through. Oh, be still my commercial-art-beating heart!
Thanks to Kathy Ishizuka for sharing this great site.
