Venetian Masks were traditionally worn to protect the identity of the wearer and were worn to disguise acts of debauchery in luxurious Venetian society. Masks were divided into two categories: Commedia dell’ Arte and Carnival. Made with a papier-mâché base, then heavily embellished with fabric, feathers, fur, and gemstones, participants will embellish their own mask creations. The one hour session is designed to encourage complete artistic freedom!
I’m a professional mixed-media artist specializing in whimsical images of people, creatures, objects and locations. My passion is creating and teaching art. I’m inspired by life’s simple moments and enjoy capturing them into my own artistic expression.
