Kids draw the news in the New York Times

The New York Times announced an amazing new feature for kids. Every day or so they will ask children in the audience to render a current event in pictorial form and submit it to the newsroom. The best drawings will then be presented in a gallery on the NYT website.

The first assignment is based on this article: The spectacular brawl in the Tap Room of the New York Athletic Club. Talking points: fancy restaurant/bar, men and women dressed up, people punching each other, throwing glasses, overturning tables, arrests. They also provide you with an example drawn by Violet Newman, daughter of NYT journalist Andy Newman.

Ready, steady, draw!
