If you are looking for fun things to do in Venice with kids, forget about monuments and museums. Try something more hands-on: our ABC course of mask decoration.
This workshop for the whole family is a different kind of experience. Our workshop is fun for everyone, whatever their age, even if you find yourself in Venice with teenagers, who are hard to satisfy!
Thanks to the wide variety of decorative techniques available, children from four years old can do it on their own while adults are free to explore their creative side and experiment with different types of sophisticated, professional decoration.
There are more than 60 models of blank Venetian masks available to be painted and decorated. All our masks are genuine Venetian masks handmade from real paper-mache. You get to choose from all the categories: Venetian carnival masks, Commedia dell'Arte masks, animal masks, etc.
The decorative techniques we teach are also genuine. They're easy to learn but they are never banal. They are the very same used by professionals. Everybody can get the effect he or she wants without stress, eventually with a little help from the instructor. You can change your mind about how your mask should look before the end.
2 – Decorate the mask in a free and creative way.
One reason why our ABCs course is among the top fun things to do in Venice with kids is that it's totally flexible. Our instructors guide kids and adults as they work independently. Nobody ever gets stuck or frustrated because you can make the mask look however you like.
And because the kids are working on their own, the adults have a little free time to express themselves, too. This course is very flexible. Combine the decorative styles in all sorts of ways to realize unique possibilities!
The ABCs mask decorating mini-course is not private so no deposit and NO RESERVATION is required. You will pay (cash) on the spot before starting the workshop.
