Miss Jennifer Ward has started a new series of ‘Meet the Artist‘ interviews with educational clip artists and asked me to start things off!
Drawing atoms from the periodic table isn’t too hard, but it is pretty time-consuming. So take advantage of my handiwork with these diagrams of the first 20 elements in the periodic table. I’ve drawn them in three different styles: Outline, Solid Black, and Valence Shell. Or grab the Bundle for all three.
Each of the style sets contains 3 sets of 20 images in black and white. One set has the atom’s symbol on the nucleus, the second has the number of protons and neutrons, and the third has an unlabeled nucleus. There are also several blank models for explaining processes and for worksheets, with full electron shells and with empty shells. Each individual set has 76 files; the bundle has 212 files in total.
The font used in this set is Alegreya Bold, a free font by Juan Pablo del Peral, in case you would like to use it in your project.
The Illinois Native Plant Society has put together a list of native plant sales across the state for the spring of 2018.

In springtime, many beautiful birds return from their winter migrations to their breeding grounds in the eastern United States. My Spring Birds Clip Art sets include birds that are fairly common throughout the range, such as an American robin, eastern bluebird, ruby-throated hummingbird, and a field sparrow.
These cute but realistic bird images can help you and your students explore the seasons, animal habits and habitats (including a checklist for nature walks), and adaptations like beaks and plumage colors.
Here’s a short video I made to share some of the processes that go behind making one of my animal clip sets, from research to getting the files ready for use. It’s fun, but it’s a lot of work. The 10 Most Venomous Snakes of Australia Clip Art set is available on TPT.
