Had fun. Learned what I needed to start practicing beach sculptures. Andy is easy going and provides hands on experience with helpful advice as you create your masterpiece.

Andy made the lesson fun and interesting while showing simple tricks to make creative sand sculptures. Very comical and kept us laughing. I'm not an artist at all but surprised myself at what I was able to create. Thanks for a fun 2 hour experience.

We enjoy the experience and Andy is so patient and nice with kids and adults!.. I recommend to take the classes at the beginning of your stay so you can practice all the techinques and tips while enjoying the sun and beach.

Wonderful instructions of the ART of sand sculpting. Andy was great with my 3 and 5 year old boys. While staying at Isla Grand we were able to learn from a true artist and be entertained by his wit and knowledge. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

We had a group of ten for a 2 hour lesson. First of Andy is an excellent & fun instructor weaving stories into teaching and hands on help to our kids and adults. We had a blast & some fair dinkum sculpting & castle making time. We highly recommend the experience.
