I am slowly but surely getting together a list of links to free clip art that people can use for their Bible timelines. Please be patient as I add to this list. Many of these images can be used on a full page as a coloring activity for your Bible studies. **please note that clicking on a link will open it in a new window.
Note: I prefer more “realistic” and “classical” artwork than comics & cartoons, so that is the clipart that I have linked here. Unless noted, most of these images are black-and-white (because my kids enjoy coloring them).
Downloading images: I right-click on the image and copy it, then paste it into a blank Word document. Then I re-size the image to the size I want. That way I can fit multiple images on one page, saving ink and paper.
You can find TONS of images from the Old and New Testament here. I have many of these listed individually below.
Various full-color clipart can be downloaded free from here.
Biblical art is listed at this site by Old Testament character ~ I haven’t looked at all of these. They are from classical paintings and illustrations; therefore, please watch for any that may be too graphic for your children.
Several images from the book of Genesis can be found here. I haven’t looked at all of these yet.
