What a Super Sculpture
Manatee has a new sand sculpture thanks to a generous donation from Sandsational Sand . The sculpture depicts subjects taught in school along with a manatee. It was neat to be able to see the different stages throughout the week as we would walk by several times a day on our way to lunch, activity, and home. It was awesome to watch Jill and Thomas as they artistically carved away precise grains of sand to form this awesome work of art. Our class was able to go out and meet the sculptors as well as ask them questions and watch them work. The students “guestimated” and then drew what they thought the finished sculpture would look like. We presented these drawings to Jill and Thomas as a thank-you gift from our class for donating their time and talent. If you haven’t seen the new sculpture, it is a “must see”. It has been rated 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! We are very lucky to have these talented sand artists create Manatee’s 7th sculpture.
