Here are 22 eye-catching free websites with clip art and images for back-to-school projects, many designed specifically for students and teachers.

Wikimedia Commons Open Clipart

An often overlooked large collection of free and well-designed images is located on Wikimedia Commons Open Clipart. Unlike most of the other sites, Wikimedia's collection is searchable. In addition they have a huge collection of photographs and other images that are excellent for school projects on Wikimedia Pictures and Images.

PLEASE NOTE that while these clipart collections are free, most of the owners want to be credited. They require that if you use their images in electronic media, you give them credit and link back to their website. Look at the licensing or usage rights links on each site to learn more.
