Sonora Elementary is proud to offer several programs focused on visual and performing arts! We have several partnerships with organizations such as Segerstrom Center for the Arts. It is important for students to be challenged academically and creatively. Some of our arts showcases include:


Each year, one of our teachers facilitates the production of a play. Students from grades 2-6 can participate and are involved in weekly rehearsals, memorizing lines, making costumes, and working collaboratively to make the play come alive. Many parents are also involved in assisting with costumes and helping backstage during the performance. The students perform the play at Costa Mesa High School's theater.

We are proud to offer a band program, that is taught by our music teacher and supported by the PTA. Students in grades 4-6 have the opportunity to play several woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments such as flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, baritone, and drums. The students rehearse three times a week after school. The band performs at various venues throughout the year, such as the Snoopy House, Irvine Performing Arts, and school concerts!

Meet the masters

All students receive the opportunity to foster their creativity through receiving engaging art curriculum. Students learn about the famous works of Master Artists and are introduced to techniques about the revolutionary art work. The classroom becomes an art studio, and students are led through an art piece, usually in the same medium, style, or subject matter as the Art Master.
