The America’s Got Talent season-seven alums visited classes at Canarelli and K.O. Knudson middle schools, where Castillo described how he discovered sand art and Close discussed how his background in sculpture and music led him to create his famed Earth Harp.

“One thing always leads to the next,” Close told students. “Life is all about steps, so don’t be discouraged if everything doesn’t come all at once.”

The stars of the show at The Palazzo Theatre were on-hand after their demonstrations to take questions from students and sign autographs.
