Enrichment Courses

With support from and gratitude to the Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF), CHS is able to offer one-credit Enrichment Courses for students, taught by staff who have a passion to share outside of their regular teaching assignments.  


We are excited to offer the following opportunities (students, please contact the corresponding staff member to sign up:  


Course Title: Mindfulness and the Art of Dream

Instructor: Karrie Jackson (karrie.jackson@coronadousd.net )

Location: CHS Room 301, Quad

Time: Saturdays 10am - 1pm

The first meeting will be held October 24, 2015 and completed by January 23, 2016 with no class during Thanksgiving or Winter Break.

(10/24, 10/31, 11/7, 11/14. 12/5, 12/12, 1/9, 1/16, 1/23)

**Due to the nature of the class and materials budget available, class size will be limited to 15 students. Please sign up with Ms. Jackson in room 301 before Wednesday, October 21st. Enrollment will be based on a first come first served basis due to class size limitations.

**Students will need to commit to 20 hours. The schedule allows students to miss only 2 Saturdays. Students will earn a credit on their transcripts. 

This is an introspective course aimed to nourish the inner artist and promote peaceful inspiration through mindfulness meditation and development of the imaginative faculty of the creative mind.

Students will be guided in visualization exercises as well as breath work and musical rhythm to prepare them for entering a meaningful and personal creative process at a healthy conscious pace. Students will be introduced to dream-related concepts and symbolism presented through cultural art history. A portion of the course will also be dedicated to dialogue in which students can discuss connections between mindfulness practices, art making and dream.


Students will have the opportunity to draw inspiration for small meaningful artworks and art and dream journaling from both the mindfulness and visualization exercises as well as integrate aspects of class dialogue and dream art as conceptual inspiration for creating original artworks. Students will have the opportunity to share and discuss with each other the meaning embedded in the visual symbolism they create.


It is key that students come prepared to be inclusive and contribute to the class community as a whole as well as being committed to using the time to explore meaningful concepts through art at a peaceful pace. This course is an opportunity to take time for YOU while supporting others to do the same.
