Art at Alturas Elementary School
Mr. Duckworth – Art Teacher
Welcome to Alturas Art!
In art class, students develop their skills, explore their creativity and celebrate the efforts of classmates. There will also be opportunities to participate in projects that showcase student work. It is a pleasure to work with Alturas students and to celebrate their growth as they create their own unique works of art!

Kids Tag Art
An annual art program for fifth graders in the fall, during which students create a unique license plate tag in class that they may purchase on a printed plate! Winning entries will be honored and displayed at an awards ceremony later in the school year.
Polk Museum of Art Field Trip
Every year, fourth grade gets to enjoy a trip to the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College! This is a unique opportunity for students to view artwork in a gallery environment.
Music at Alturas Elementary School
Mrs. Malone – Music Teacher
At Alturas music is very engaging. We sing, dance, play, read, write, and create music. Alturas has many and varied ways for students to participate and learn from music. Younger students spend a lot of time singing, dancing, reading and playing rhythms, and exploring percussion instruments. As they grow and learn we begin more fine motor interactions with recorders, xylophones, ukuleles, pianos, and deeper music exploration. In 2019 we added modern band instruments provided by Little Kids Rock. Some students are selected to participate in Band which allows for learning on flute, clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, and drums. Exciting opportunities are available at Alturas. Interested students can also join our extra-curricular clubs. Gardening/Science and Chorus/Music Club give students extra time to socialize and experience learning outside of the regular classroom. Welcome to Alturas Music! We are glad you are here.
