A two and a half hour workshop will teach you the fundamentals of building sand sculptures. Young and old will experience what it takes to complete a work of art just like the professionals do it. You'll find out what can really be accomplished with just sand and water. So bring your imagination and we'll handle the rest! Ages 6 and up. Please note that children under 12 require a parent or guardian to be present throughout the workshop.
