• Short Summary

    Children at a New York school try a method of painting with their fingers - it's good!

  • Description

    Diagram of a map points out New York - United States of America, London, Venice - Italy, The Hague - Netherlands, Toledo - USA as the locations for stories in this issue.

    Titles read: "FINGER PAINTING!"

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    At Brooklyn school we see children / teenagers in an art class. One girl puts a wash of paint over her paper or canvas then uses her fingers to draw the head of a girl - it's very good (I might try this!).

    At the New York Museum of Natural History we see people looking at hundreds of paintings by children. C/U of a cartoon-like painting of Eleanor Roosevelt skating with John Barrymore (it looks more like Lionel Barrymore to me, but commentator says it's John).
