Santa Resting Before His Big Night-Sand Art


Sand art is the practice of modelling sand into an artistic form, such as a sand brushingsand sculpturesandpainting, or sand bottles. A sandcastle is a type of sand sculpture resembling a miniature building, often a castle.

The two basic building ingredients, sand and water, are available in abundance on a sandy beach, so most sand play takes place there, or in a sandpit. Tidal beaches generally have sand that limits height and structure because of the shape of the sand grains. Good sculpture sand is somewhat dirty, having silt and clay that helps lock the irregular-shaped sand grains together.

The weather in New Jersey has been so mild that it brought out all the local sand sculptors, and appropriately enough, they put together a “resting Santa” before his big night of traveling the world.   This project took two weeks and 15 artists to bring Santa to life in the shore town of Sea Isle City NJ.
