Harold InDelicato has taught at many colleges across New England and the Northeast, including The Art Institute of New York City, Rhode Island College, Johnson & Wales University, and Lasell College. He began teaching in 2004 while attending Boston University (BU). He realized his desire to teach while taking a short-term position as a teaching assistant at BU. From there, InDelicato began a rewarding career that included work as a computer graphics professional. Throughout his extensive corporate career, he has been committed to the utmost excellence in the fields of animation, design, communications, and media. He currently resides in New York City where he practices animation and ink drawing. His hobbies include surfing, reading, and beekeeping.

Artist Statement

As an artist and animator, Harold InDelicato's goal is to stir the imagination through the presentation of shapes, sound, and movement in space. As his chosen art form, animation poses a unique opportunity to present his audience with a separate reality that may or may not adhere to physical constraints. It draws the observer into the moment and offers new and perhaps contrary perspectives.

As a teacher, InDelicato tries to do the same with his students—draw them in, change their perspective, give them the opportunity to learn something new and valuable in a way that will be most meaningful to them. Helping a student to achieve their full potential can be a work of art in itself, one that requires just as much effort, skill and talent as any other artistic endeavor.
