Description
A history of Venetian Carnevale masks from the early appearances to its outlaw and return to popularity. The class will discuss the laws surrounding masks, various types of masks, and the traditions surrounding masking. At the end there will be a brief demonstration of my attempts to recreate the masks using what I believe to be period techniques. This class will not be recorded.
