Haifa Bint Kadi
Haifa Bint Kadi is a first-generation Arab-American and enjoys sharing aspects of her Middle Eastern heritage in her school residencies.
She obtained her M.F.A. from Istituto d’Arte per il mosaico in Ravenna, Italy. She has been designing and fabricating public art mosaics since 1997, and recently completed a series of sculptures for the State of New York at SUNY Oneonta. She has over 14 years of experience delivering art workshops that make meaningful and authentic connections between art and non-art subjects. Her passion for history is evident in the multiple art forms she works with, including bookmaking, mixed media, collage, assemblage, narrative figures, and wabi sabi-inspired art forms.
