Meet The Faculty
Robert (Bob) Nowalk joined the Academies’ Fine Arts teaching staff in 1996 after spending 21 years as a Visual Arts Educator and artist in Dayton, Ohio. Bob’s work with aspiring artists of all ages made him uniquely qualified to serve not only as an instructor in the Winter School Visual Arts area but also, beginning in 1998, as Director of Arts and Crafts at Woodcraft. Bob holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Michigan State University and Bachelors from the University of Dayton. As an artist and teacher, Bob has received recognition and awards from a variety of institutions including fellowships and grants from the Ohio Arts Council, The Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center, The Council for Basic Education in Washington D.C., and the Indiana Arts Commission. In addition to his work as a Master Instructor, Bob serves as the Culver Visual Art Collection Coordinator and as the Catholic Liaison to the Roman Catholic student population in both the Winter and Summer programs. He is a certified catechist with the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. Bob and Jenny, his wife of 30 years, live in Culver and have five children; three of whom are graduates of the Academies.
