Composition in shades of blue, black, white and red. Contour lines and dashes. It depicts children in coral. In the foreground, four children side by side, facing. They have suggested facial features, wear clothing with sleeves and long skirts and hold scores. From the left to the right: a boy, his hair combed into bangs, seeing it a part of your foot. It is next to two girls looking forward to the hair with widow's peak and braids. To the right, a little girl looking up, hair with braids on both sides and see if your on the left foot pointed to the right. Behind the four children, two more children sketched also looking up. Plain background.
