Cassandra Schifano

Art Teacher/Mentor

Cassandra Schifano  graduated from the University of Notre Dame, with her Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a double major of Ceramics & Fiber Arts. Her own art practice focuses on textile processes as a sculptural medium, and using art making as a way to explore intergenerational trauma.

Cassandra has recently moved to Chicago and is delighted to be closer to her family. She is excited to explore the city and meet more of the art community there.

Cassandra enjoys spending time with her two dogs Bijou & Ace, gardening, reading all she can get her hands on, camping/hiking, sewing, yoga, and doing anything art related.
