Teams typically comprised of architects, engineers, contractors, designers, corporations, and local elementary school students work together to build giant sand sculptures. The funds raised by teams and sponsors make it possible for Leap to continue to provide arts programs to Bay Area students.
Thousands of people attend Leap's annual Sandcastle Classic, which is free to the community. The event is covered by regional print and online media, and celebrity judges evaluate the final sand sculptures. More than 25 local schools, 100 companies, and 300 donating companies participate each year.
About Leap Arts in Education:
Leap was established in 1979 in response to severe budget cuts in arts programs in California schools. These cuts continue to affect arts education in our schools today, and the need for high-quality arts programs is now greater than ever. Leap's programs place professional teaching artists in classrooms to work with grades K-5. Every year, these educational programs--in music, dance, theatre, creative writing, visual arts, and architecture--serve over 8,000 students in more than 30 elementary schools throughout the Bay Area.
Leap's goal is to raise $300,000 from this year's Sandcastle Classic to help provide high-quality arts education programs.
