Local Author Joyce Chapman releases new book Raising a Dreamer
Posted by: Coronado Arts 1 year, 11 months ago

RAISING A DREAMER invites you to know yourself, so you are a role model for other dreamers. The book is designed to empower you to recognize all your wishes, hopes, and dreams; and to claim the excitement of raising a dreamer. Joyce Chapman encourages you to step over the boundaries of average thinking and create a new way of embracing living a dream-centered life!

Imagine living in a world where every man, woman, and child woke up every day with excitement and the anticipation of being allowed to fully embrace all of his or her wishes, hopes, and dreams.

September 11 - 17, 2016 is National Arts Education Week
Posted by: Coronado Arts 1 year, 11 months ago

September 11 to 17 is National Arts Education Week as designated by the US Congress.  This provides the opportunity to reflect on how important arts education is to the development of children and to celebrate the excellent opportunities that exist in Coronado.  Scientific research, especially in the field of brain mapping, has proven that the type of activities and studies undertaken in dance, theatre, music, visual arts, creative writing, film and media are extremely helpful, if not essential to a well-educated mind.  Documented research indicates that schools with arts integrated curriculum and specialized arts curriculum often produce the highest overall student academic performance.

Saturday, August 6th, the Coronado Senior Center will be hosting their annual Summer Social Fundraiser! This years will support our local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2422. The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service: Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.
