Leap, Arts in Education

Leap, Arts in Education is a non-profit organization that provides quality arts education programs to children in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Since 1983, Leap has held the Sandcastle Contest, a lively and creative competition between teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers and elementary school students. This is the largest sandcastle-building contest in Northern California and the funds raised help Leap to bring hands-on art and architecture programs to local elementary schools.

Architectural Resources Group has been a proud sponsor and participant in the Leap Sandcastle Contest for over 15 years, helping to engage the community and encourage imagination and creativity in the elementary school participants.

Every year we look forward to collaborating with the fifth grade students at John Yehall Chin Elementary in San Francisco. Rain or shine, Architectural Resources Group’s enthusiastic team is at Ocean Beach every year for Leap’s inspiring Sandcastle Contest!
