  • Matteo Montagner of Balocoloc Artisans will demonstrate the art of creating authentic hand-painted Venetian masks
  • Chelsea Rousso and her students will be showing off the stunning glass masks that they made at the WMODA workshop.
  • Photograph all the masqueraders along with the spectacular Fired Arts at WMODA with professional artist, Lloyd Goradesky
