Kite Clip Art

Tips To Help You Find The Best!

Looking for kite clip art? Frustrated by not always finding a 'kites' category? Here's the info you need! It's mainly just a matter of going to the right websites and using the search function.

To save you some bother, I've conveniently listed some good sites which provide a variety of great clip art depicting kites. I also give detailed instructions to find and use the site's search function, so it returns only relevant clip-art results.

Although there's plenty of free clip art on the Web, you will find that very little of it is searchable. Hence you can't select out just the kite-related stuff. You will probably have to spend a few dollars to get quality images onto your hard drive. Times have changed!

Some Good Sources Of Kite Clip Art

The images on the listed sites tend to belong to one of the following types...

  • Black and white caricatures
  • Color caricatures on white background
  • Color caricatures on colored backdrops
  • Cartoon-style frames

"Love the easy to understand step by step instructions, made from next to nothing materials and above all so much fun to fly... cheers Tim for sharing your well thought out pdf kite designs with the whole world.

Very satisfying making your own and watching them get air-born for the first time."


"I decided to run kite making as an elective again on this camp in the past week - so I bought all your e-books, a bunch of materials, and then took a group of 10 high school students through making the kites over 4 days. We built a diamond, a Barn Door, a Delta, and two skew delta kites. Again - every single kite flew."


"I've just bought your super e-book and spent most of last night pouring through all the great stuff in it!

Very detailed and USEFUL information - thanks for such a great book."


"30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.

 Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
