Meet the Masters is an interactive multi-media art education program based on the lives and works of well-known master artists. Students are introduced to a famous artist and learn of their history and their particular art technique. Working with parent volunteers, Coastal Academy provides an engaging learning experience for all students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Five to seven artists are introduced each year and students learn about their lives and practice creating their own masterpiece by using the same or similar skill.
Music is provided for students in grades K-8 as students experience opportunities for vocal, instrumental, and rhythmic expressions. This music program explores basic music skills and concepts. Students in 5th grade begin instrumental instruction in the recorder, with an emphasis on reading music and performance skills. We also have a middle-school world drumming group. Chorus may be offered as a lab based on student interest.
Coastal Academy is well-known for its musical theatre program. Full stage productions are held annually as students in grades 5-8 act, sing, and dance as they bring their best to the stage. Past productions have included Once Upon a Mattress, Seussical the Musical, The King and I, and Honk Jr. Musical theatre is available as an after school program.
