Group of children standing and sitting show off their works of art by raising it in the air. They hold their art high with pride. Their artwork looks like circular cardboard with holes where strings of ribbon dangle. Along the sides there are a couple of adults also sitting and standing. The ground is concrete and behind them are a series of portraits on fabric of male identified individuals. Grupo de niños en pie y sentados mostrando sus obras de arte levantándolas en el aire. Mantienen su arte en alto con orgullo. Su obra de arte parece como cartón circular con agujeros donde cuelgan hilos de cinta. A los lados hay un par de adultos también sentados y de pie. El suelo es de cemento y detrás de ellos hay una serie de retratos sobre tela de individuos identificados como masculinos.
