Thanks to everyone who entered StyleCarrot partner Minted’s $100 Minted Affordable Art Print Giveaway. I just picked the winner. It’s Emily L.! Emily and her husband (whom I happen to know because they both taught my son in elementary school) have toddler triplets. Seriously. Two girls and a boy.
In honor of their little rascals I’ve chose ten child-appropriate art prints. Congrats on your art prize. Emily. Let me know if you need help picking anything out. Minted has lots of affordable artwork, especially art prints for kids.
Since I’m spending the month on the Outer Cape, curating a collection of whale artwork seems fitting. I’ve never actually been on a whale watch, I’ve never read Moby Dick, and I’ve definitely never worn miniature whales on a belt—not even in the ’80s—but I’ve live in New England long enough to appreciate the whale.
My son spent his entire third grade year learning about whales and whaling, though admittedly I didn’t accompany the class on any whaling museum field trips. I did however buy him Don Carney’s Timid Whale print at 20×20. After the boys broke the glass with a football I moved it to their bathroom, where it lives happily.
Here are 13 not too preppy whale artworks—children’s art and grownup specimens—from a variety of artists and shops, including StyleCarrot partners.
