A4L Teaching Artist Kira Tippenhauer.

Born and raised in Haiti, Kira began teaching by helping out at her mother’s day care center in Port au Prince.  Working with children at such a young age has inspired her to seamlessly pursue youth development in addition to her own art making.  Kira moved to Miami with her family in 2004.  After earning a bachelor’s degree in International Studies from Elon University in North Carolina, Kira returned to South Florida to pursue her true passion for art and earned a master’s degree in fine arts and ceramics from Miami International University.  Inspired by her extensive travels, Kira is an accomplished  bookmaker and collage artist.
