As you said, Judy, Dover books are wonderful for "jump-starting" students!
I just purchased a Dover book entitled, "Dragons and Wizards" which now
includes the book with an accompanying CD. In this book are 190
permission-free designs. The price: $14.95...but well-worth it!

ideas - plus FREE images
Greetings Art Educators,
I have been receiving the Dover Newsletter for a few weeks now and
have saved many FREE clip art images to file for later use (for when?
who knows? - but I have ornamentation, flowers, animals - you name it
- all into separate folders on my machine). I am posting now because
they have a HUGE summer sale going - great deals on a lot of books I
had purchased in the past.
You even get free shipping on orders over $50.00. I used Dover books
for many lessons. I found that most of my students needed "jump
started" for ideas... Money well spent. Many of my units were inspired
by cultural patterns. There is nothing wrong with using images to
inspire - many artists do (and I still view them as creative).
My apologies for the "commercial" (smile) - but some commercials are
