White House Children's Art Room

July 26, 2015 Notes: Most Kennedy historians are aware that Jackie created a private school (kindergarten) on the third floor of the White House for Caroline and a select group of children (seven girls and four boys) from the Kennedy's inner circle.. From a May 1963 film by Cecil Stoughton, it appears as if "The Music Room" down the hall also served as an "art room" annex to the main classroom in the Solarium. The third floor hallway was also used for the children's performances and the "ramp" hallway leading into the Solarium often displayed the children's artwork.
