This tutorial explains how to add clip art images in Google Docs documents.
Openclipart is a handy and free plugin available for Google Docs that provides a whole lot of clip art images. You can insert any clip art in your Google Docs document to make it more effective. More than 50 thousand images are available to choose from. Unfortunately, there are no categories available to sort images. However, you can use search option to enter keywords, and find the relevant clip art image.
In above screenshot, you can see the clip art images inserted by me in a document using this plugin.
Note: You can also upgrade to Pro version to get high-resolution clip art images in different sizes.
