I am frequently asked if it is permissible to print artwork for your homeschool studies from the internet. All images that are in the public domain are perfectly fine to use.
We use Wikiart a lot and if it says it is in the public domain you are okay to download and print.
So for example:
If you click and look at this painting, look underneath it and you will see where it says it is in the public domain.
Then click the “why” link next to the note about public domain. That will pop up a box that shows why it is considered public domain.

- This is a great place to search for images of all kinds: Creative Commons Search. But be careful if you are going to share these images online, check the copyright restrictions. Most Flickr images have an Attribution requirement.
