International Sand Art Competition in Key West
The Casa Marina resort is hosting the 2014 International Sand Art Competition over Thanksgiving weekend. The competitors sculpt their masterpieces made from just sand and water. This free event continues throughout the weekend. Visitors can watch the artists sculpt from 9am till 5:30 PM daily. The sculptures will be lit in the evening. Six renowned sand sculptors, all decorated artists from around the globe will convene on the sand at the Casa Marina beach during the International sand Art Competition.
Sculptor’s Tip: Fill a bucket with sand and water and use the sludge to make sand pancakes. If you let the layers dry before you put the next one on, you can build towers that go up to the sky. Once you have the height you are looking fortake a trowel, butter knife or any other tool you could carve the sand with and shape it the way you want your tower to look.
