And the blind poet patted himself on the back as he watched it all go by. What started three or four thousand years ago with sweeping epics has now spread to three or four thousand websites (or more!) that sweep across the whole range of free clipart, stock photos, and paid image libraries. Humanity is fascinated with imagination and grandiose mental image-making. While the technology of the oral tradition allowed Homer, the blind-but-great Greek poet, to recount dangerous deeds of derring-do by memorizing and reciting, the modern world now allows the average desktop publisher to recount those deeds with a few searches and clicks. And perhaps crested helmets and burnished breastplates aren’t the subject of a given clipart need; still, free clip art covers everything from holidays to handbags and school to superstition. Once the mouth to the pen, now the mouse to the printer: the great skill of capturing and captivating the attention of the audience comes by creating the image. Just think: careening chariots and windswept plains caught your mind’s eye. Imagine how free clipart can do the same.
Once you’ve found a usable image, print yourself a copy of any images with labeled parts. Then use a paint program to white out the labels and print that copy for your child. Your child can label or color the image and have both art and science lesson at the same time.
