Where to Find Halloween Clip Art

By Charles Hopkins Published 08/8/2006 | Kids & Teens

In the eyes of many children, Halloween remains one of the most popular holidays of the year. Okay, Halloween will never overtake Christmas, but it is quite possibly the second most popular holiday of the year. For a little kid, free chocolate and candy is a way better deal than the turkey and vegetables one gets at Thanksgiving. Plus, that is the same type of foods kids get served at Christmas anyway.

Because Halloween is so enormously popular, many of the images associated with Halloween are highly visible and highly recognizable. As such, they make great decorations. Witches, black cats, pumpkins, Jack OLanterns all look down right cool.

So, it goes without saying, these Halloween images make for great clip art. Now, while many would like to acquire Halloween clip art, many are quite unaware about how one might acquire classic Halloween clip art. Actually, there are quite a number of online venues one might pursue to find Halloween clip art.

The most common method of buying clip art would be to go to any store around Halloween time and shell out a few dollars for some ready made, professional clip art. This is not a bad idea, but it is not the only method of acquiring Halloween clip art. In fact, it should be the last resort.

Why should it be saved as a last resort? Well, because the internet provides additional options to the traditional methods of acquisitions. Old habits die hard, but standing in line at the store to buy clip art could be drastically reduced, if not totally eliminated, if one used the Internet as the method of acquisition.

First, it must be understood that it is not necessary to shell out money for clip art. In this day and age, most clip art can be acquired for free on the net. Now, free does not automatically mean that the quality of the clip art is low. In actuality, the opposite is true. Most of the sources of free Halloween clip art on the net provide for a high level of quality and do not look like a cheap, second rate version of traditional Halloween clip art.

A few of the more popular sites include: www.kidsdomain.com, www.andynortnik.com, and www.herseys.com all have subsections of their websites dedicated to Halloween clip art. And, the quality of the clip art provided on these sites (all offered free of charge) is top notch and definitely worth appropriating.

Now, it is suggested that if one does acquire clip art from any of these sites (or any other site for that matter) not to place the clip art on other websites without crediting the source site where they were originally acquired. This is only fair to those who have gone to the trouble and effort in order to design and offer these great images to the public.

So, check these sites out for items you may like. And, if you do see something that you like, feel free to appropriate it in any way you wish!
