Mona Brody

Visiting Assistant Professor, Fine Arts

Mona Brody's Life Study I class collaborated with dance students at the Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) for a year-long project, in which Pratt observed classes, learning how to sketch, photograph, and paint these graceful figures in action. In turn, Brody led drawing workshops for the dancers. The project culminated in a May exhibit of the final artwork held at DTH. In addition, one piece was chosen to be reproduced for a poster advertising the dancers' own final performance. The collaboration will take place again this fall.
