    Excellent experience with my nephew who is six years old. A day later he is still talking about the mask . The instructor was very patient and I loved that we were able to work in a small group with focused attention on us. A good value for the money and great for kids.

    My boyfriend and I went to paint masks and it was a super fun interactive activity. The shop was so cute and we had a great time. We even bought some masks from the owners. They owners were extremely nice and very informative and helpful. I would definitely go again.

    I visited the studio with our son (9). The atmosphere there alone makes you feel creative. The instructions from Giorgio and his son were very good and adapted. It was a lot of fun for my son and the conversation with Giorgio was really great. We would love to come back!
