What is a good way to spend some downtime in central Venice?

I'm a (female) student who is traveling to Venice with a group for several days in a few weeks. I will have most evenings free and am looking for an enriching or interesting way to occupy them.
Most other questions about Venice are regarding people traveling there for a day or two asking about the region and the city in general. I'm going to have more time than that to see the non-typical sites.
1) I'm already doing the touristy stuff.
2) I'm not averse to spending a little money though I would prefer to keep that spending to a minimum.
3) I don't speak Italian - English and decent French, yes.
4) I'm staying in the Castello Ovest and don't really want to be wandering all over the entire city at night.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
