It is possible to make printable coloring pages using clip art images in Microsoft Word. An easy way to create the coloring page is to choose a black and white image from clip art and placing it on the page where it is desired.
If a picture with color is the desired image for the coloring page, it is possible to make it black and white by first selecting the image and clicking on the format tab. The next step is to click on the arrow that appears next to recolor and to choose the grayscale option. If the image is still too dark, the brightness can be adjusted using the brightness menu.
