Ages 5-12 Children have an intuitive sense of spatial ability. When they close their eyes to visualize an image they are essentially using their "minds eye" to concentrate and problem solve. Sand offers the children a unique medium for artistic expression and opens up the world beyond paint and clay. Interpreting the world through different modalities provides the children with an opportunity to recognize their spatial talent. Developing the spatial intellect is as important as developing linguistic, mathematical, kinesthetic and social skills. After all Albert Einstein gathered his basic insights and inspirations from spatial models and imagery. While we are not expecting the children to split an atom at the end of the day, sculpting sand will help fulfill their need for artistic expression will fostering cognitive development. About Marianne van den Broek Marianne has been a sand sculptor since 1999 and started her sand sculpting business in Key West in 2009. She has worked with local schools and youth to introduce them to this art form and let them explore the possibilities of sculpture with this temporary medium. Marianne moved to the United States in 2004 after graduating with a bachelor's degree in communications in the Netherlands. She and her husband moved to Key West in 2005 and besides traveling all over to work with sand she is a local charter boat captain who can be found on the waters around Key West.
