Her work is featured in both private and public collections. Her work explores conditions and experiences of instinctual human interactions through the use of the body, rituals, and the intimacy of a kiss. In performances, videos, paintings and sculptural objects, she calls into question the personal narratives of vulnerability and desire. In immersive installations she invites the viewers to engage and share a private intimate moment in a collective environment experience. The artist’s personal rituals fuse the fragments of cultural traditions, rituals and beliefs into performative actions and objects. Web: https://www.ronitlevindelgado.com/
I am a multidisciplinary visual artist, with a Masters of Fine Arts in Studio Art at Montclair State University where I was a Fulbright Scholar from Israel.
Teaching Artist Experience
I have a wide art teaching experience and am knowledgeable in many areas of visual expression, from painting and sculpture to installation, video and performance. I am also passionate about introducing students from all backgrounds, areas and cultures to new art forms and artistic ideas with the focus on continuous improvement and self-exploration. My extensive art education experience includes my most recent experience as the Middle and Upper School Art Teacher at Bank Street College. I create lesson plans and write curricula for individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds, including at NYC public schools where I have learned to build a classroom culture where all students can achieve. Also, my experience includes curating and organizing student work art exhibitions. I have been teaching art to all ages and skill levels, from kindergarten to the elderly for the past 10 years, and during my military service in Israel, when I worked with autistic children and mental health institutes creating a variety of art projects. I have held positions as an art educator, teacher, director, lecturer and adjunct professor at public and private schools, universities, summer camps and various art institutions which required using data to improve students’ long term and short term goals as well as implementing feedback from other fellow teachers, administration and team members. I designed and led several professional development workshops such as Art History (incorporated the use of the school’s library for textbooks and other resources, writing tasks), Video (Adobe Premier Pro), Adobe Photoshop, Portfolio and final Project Section Creation, Brainstorming, Presentations & Critiques.
