It’s known as the Superbowl at located at 6286 El Camino Real in Carlsbad. This year’s spring art show is April 5 and teachers and students are already busy getting ready.
“We have infants to six-year olds at our school,” said Mare Williams, Director at Aspirations. “They are all taking part in The Collected Works experience that we developed. It is a program that allows every classroom to study the world’s finest artists and create their own masterpieces.”
Aspirations follows the Reggio approach out of Italy, with the belief that each child creates their own learning experience from direct interaction with their environment.
“One classroom created a beach scene for Wyland and put its final project on a surfboard,” said Williams.
Aspirations students are exposed to a variety of mediums such as charcoal and clay in the Atelier, the school’s outdoor art studio.
Williams says each classroom has until December to choose its artist.
“Then on April 5 we will all celebrate what the children created. Family is invited and every classroom will look like a gallery, draped in white with twinkling lights. It fills my heart when I see the connections the children make and the rewards they get back.”
