Children depict current events.
It is Day 3 of the New York City school bus drivers strike, and while there are no signs of it being settled soon, there is one small upside: it is providing fodder for the young artist-journalists who drive Kids Draw the News.
Kwame, age 10, of East Harlem, did an entire six-panel comic strip (see above), which lays out the issues clearly, though a journalism watchdog group might say he tilts slightly toward the drivers’ union’s point of view.
Nate, 7, and Teddy, 10, also sent in their renditions.
We’re still taking submissions, though, for a slide show. Perhaps your kid can draw one while on that long bus-less trip to school.
(And don’t forget — you can also draw Miss America in Brooklyn. Read about that assignment here.)
