Nicole Romaanski, Adjunct Faculty

I believe the arts awaken and raise our consciousness to the human experience.

Biography
Nicole M. Romanski has taught as an adjunct professor in the Department of Art Education and Crafts at Kutztown University for nine years. She enjoys teaching elementary and high school methods courses, the early field experience, student teaching, as well as arts integration for the elementary education majors. Prior to her work at Kutztown, she was an elementary art teacher teaching K-6. Nicole presents often at national conferences and has been part of the Dinner Party Curriculum Team for the last three years. Presently, she is pursuing her Doctoral of Philosophy in Educational Leadership at Alvernia University. Her research interests include arts integration and dialogical pedagogy. Nicole lives with her husband and three children in Reading, Pennsylvania and enjoys theater, dance, and travelling with her family.

Artist Statement
A discourse between dance and visual art has been my sense making of the world since childhood. I am interested in the transfer between one aesthetic essence to another and specifically the response to visual art through movement. The new movement response builds on the original work that is imbedded within an artist’s social construct and visual orientation. The participants in the movement response add their narratives and social realities to the conversation. By engaging with the visual art through an aesthetic experience with the body, new understandings are contextualized. My art is informed by the work of Trisha Brown, Ana Mendieta, and Isadora Duncan. As an art educator, I create opportunities for my students to engage in dialogue between the visual and the kinesthetic. In addition, I have a sensitivity and commitment to honoring human beings who learn through embodiment, and I provide voice for those who communicate ideas most completely through dance.
