With a lot of happenings around the world, there is an International Sand Art Festival coming in Odisha which will last from 1st to 5th December, 2017. Brought to you by Odisha Tourism Development, this cultural event cannot be missed. The event highlights Odisha where artists and sand sculptors from all over the world come here to display their art and talent. You must have seen a number of arts and sculptors but this one will not be typical since it involves sand.

Can you even imagine sculpting beautiful artworks from sand which usually falls off our hands the moment we collect it? If not then you must visit Odisha with your loved ones and enjoy the mesmerizing art crafted with sand. If you have some questions regarding the same then worry no more as below are the answers to your questions which will help you steer clear from any doubts.

What Is The International Sand Art Festival?

The International Sand Art Festival was started in 2015 and takes place at Chandrabhaga Beach which is not far from Konark. Tourists from all over the world are known to flock here at this time of the year to witness the amazing sand art which always leaves one in awe. Artists and sculptors from national and international borders gather here to display their talents which will be one of a kind.

What To Expect At The International Sand Art Festival?

You can expect not just sand but even wood, stone or bronze used by these artists to show off their work. Sounds interesting right? You will find a number of sand artists from India as well as other countries participating in this festival which will take place on a large scale.

Why You Must Take Your Child To This Festival?

The idea of this festival takes us back to the time when we as kids used to visit the beach with our parents and make sand castles or simply dig a hole through the sand with our little plastic tools. Does your child enjoy building castles of sand and loves to visit the beach for the same reason? Do you find your child enjoying in the mud with his little tools? If yes then this is a perfect opportunity for you to attend the International Sand Art Festival with your little one. Book your tickets right away and get ready to be spectators of this amazing show of talent and art combined.

  1. With so much creativity to see and explore, your child will develop more inquisitiveness towards art and hence it might even help him/her develop a hobby
  2. Your child can get to see and meet a variety of people not just from our motherland but from all over the world which will help you in teaching him about diversity within humans
  3. Networking and socializing with people from all around the globe will encourage your child to make more friends
  4. Discovering talent on such an extensive scale will help your child discover talent within himself too
  5. Not only this, you can take your child to explore Odisha and help him learn about the cultures of the respective place

Is There Something For Older Children As Well?

Irrespective of your child’s age, this festival is a perfect place to take your child to bond with him. The place is wonderful and will give your child and you a break from the routine. As the beach is where this festival is taking place, your child will love the company of sand. He might even try himself to create such sculptures on his own while you can click pictures to take back home as a memory to cherish. Have we given you enough reasons to take your kid to this eye catching sand art festival yet? If yes, then book your tickets and get all set to view some rich artwork all by yourself.

Learning Through Play At Sand Art Festival

Who said that a child will only learn through studies? Playing along with imparting knowledge to your child will help him learn better. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. So take full advantage of this fortuity and go ahead to have the best time of your life with your little one.
