An interest in partying is a world-trait. Thursday, Aspen Elementary School will be whooping it up in the form of a carnival.
The entire school is getting involved, Stephanie Rittner, an art teacher said, is getting involved. Kindergarteners through sixth-graders will participate in a parade, exhibit their artwork and second- and first-graders will perform a dance.
Music will also be played.
The parade, which will be for parents, will begin at 1:45 p.m.
The program was supported by a Fine Arts Education grant. The state awards the grant, Rittner said and the district received the money for its elementary art for the past four years.
An exhibit held at the Santa Fe Folk Art Museum inspired the curriculum.
“We were looking at the idea of the world being a global community,” Rittner said. “So instead of looking at differences, I wanted to look at similarities so a number of years ago, the Folk Art Museum is Santa Fe did a show on carnival costumes from around the world, so I just used that as the inspiration for the project with the kids.”
