Personas and Personalities in Art: A Hands-On Exploration into Venetian Masks and Masquerades


Get inspired by famous and intriguing Venetian masks throughout history like the Medica della Peste (Plague Doctor), the Colombina half-mask, the cat-like Gnaga and more to kickstart your creativity and curiosity into this Renaissance art. Each persona often represents a particular role and a set of personalities within the Venetian culture.

During this masterclass, express your creativity by creating your own plaster mould and papier-mâché cast. Craft and embellish your own Venetian mask from scratch. As a BONUS, you also get to immerse yourself in Venice via VR experience with Google Cardboard.

Historically, these masks became so popular throughout the wealthy Venetian Republic in commerce, elections and daily lifestyle to the extent that the Roman Empire had to limit its use. Symbolising prosperity and craftsmanship, this elegant European art is now getting popular among cosplayers, costume artists, theatre practitioners, partygoers and carnival organisers around the world.

Best for youth and adult learners. Children aged 10 and above are welcomed. Class will only commence with 5 sign ups.
