Carl Jara


As a kid, Carl attended high school with one single goal in mind — ART — but somehow he struggled to capture its elusive magic. In his biography he writes:

“I went to high school with the sole focus of making art, taking and retaking every art course in the school curriculum. In an act of desperation my teacher sent me to work with the stage crew lead by Tom Morrison; firefighter and President For Life of the International Association of Sand Castle Builders. He took me under his wing, teaching me the basics of both sand sculpting and business.”


Then, the rest is history!
