  • December 14, 1931 An exhibition of decorative design executed by children in the elementary grades of all the boroughs opened December 15 at the Brooklyn Museum, and will continue on view fro the public through January 15. The work is arranged by years to illustrate how the problems advance in difficulty form the first year through the ninth grade. The work is very brilliant in color and extremely original in the use of certain motifs, showing the influence of other subjects in the study courses such as history, geography and literature studied at the same time.

    The exhibition was planned by Miss Edith L. Nichols, Assistant Art Director in the city schools and the following committee of supervisory special art teaches: Margaret A. Connor, Marguerite N. Weyn, Jeanne A. Nygren, Ernestine C. Rice and Mary F. Thompson.
