Celebrate Earth Day by creating art on the beach! Join in as community members, professional artists, and passers-by construct sculpture using sand, rocks, shells, seaweed and other beach treasures. In past years, we've stacked rock towers, made spirals from seaweed, planted a forest of ‘trees’ made of driftwood, and created dragons, fairies, and abstract designs. During this playful event, participants work alone and in groups, transforming the beach into an evolving outdoor sculpture gallery. The intention behind the event is to create an experience that will inspire and energize people to care for and protect the earth not only on Earth Day, but throughout the year. The event starts with beach cleanup. We supply bags and gloves.

Musicians, dancers, and other artists also participate in the event, inviting collaborative expression in service to the earth. You are invited to bring along small percussion instruments such as shakers, bells, or palm-sized drums to join in the musical creation.

Instruction in sand globe making will take place periodically throughout the event, and we'll use the globes in our creative endeavors.

Bring a picnic lunch. The gathering will take place rain, shine, or fog. Come any time from 11:00AM-3:00PM. All ages. Sorry, no dogs allowed at this end of the beach. Consider carpooling and public transportation. The event is at the south end of the beach (to the left as you face the ocean).
