Did you know we have some very special murals right here in Coronado? During the 1930s, the federal government-sponsored artists throughout the country. Ours can be found at Coronado High School. You may even see Donal Hord’s The Legend of California, a set of seven panels carved from limestone when you drive by the school. Children are invited to learn about the murals and make their own take-home artwork. Kids will have fun using many different mural techniques from painting to mosaic during this hands-on program.

This Coronado Historical Association Hand’s on History program on Saturday, March 16, is for those ages 4 to 12 and will take place at the Coronado Historical Association, 1100 Orange Avenue, from 11 a.m. to noon. RSVP is encouraged, www.coroandohistory.org or 619-435-7242.

The Community Read made possible by Friends of the Coronado Public Library and the Coronado Cultural Arts Commission.
