Kids Draw the News
Drawing by Violet Newman, age 7, Brooklyn.
via NY Times:

We are excited to announce the debut of a new feature on City Room today: Kids Draw the News, in which we ask the children in the audience to render a current event in pictorial form.
Today’s assignment: The spectacular brawl in the Tap Room of the New York Athletic Club. Please have your children-artists read the article or read/summarize it for them. Talking points: fancy restaurant/bar, men and women dressed up, people punching each other, throwing glasses, overturning tables, arrests. (I took the liberty this morning of asking my daughter to provide the example above.)

FJP: This will be interesting. I think I’d prefer the drawings that kids come up with on their interpretation, when their parents don’t summarize the story.—Jihii
