|Getting used to computers, scanners, digital cameras and drawing tablets|
Most drawing/animation programs come with some clip-art, and it is often found on cover disks. Much free clip-art is available on Internet animation/drawing websites. You can also make up your own libraries from work other children have done.
Clip-art is good for pre-set lessons. At a basic level, young children can colour in simple pictures and then see them animated. At another level, the student can complete partly drawn images, or add their own drawings to the clip-art. There are also programs that allow ‘drag and drop’ images such as having a clip-art face and then dragging the features of the eyes, mouth, etc and dropping them in the face.
Collections of clip-art can be made up into libraries to include, faces, figures, vehicles, backgrounds etc.
Clip-art can also be photographs. Typically background scenes that can have drawings added to them. These backgrounds can be converted to line drawings and re-coloured.
