From Abilene via Canyon, Lubbock, Vega and Amarillo, Texas, Monica Prado has come to Denton where she will provide instructional and classroom support in the CVAD Foundations program. She brings teaching experience from high school-, community college- and university-level classes.

Prado received an M.F.A. in printmaking with a minor in interdisciplinary arts from the School of Art at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, and a B.F.A. from West Texas A&M, Canyon, Texas. While at TTU, Prado taught Drawing I as the instructor of record and upper-level figure drawing and printmaking as a graduate teaching assistant. After graduate school, Prado spent two years managing the Vega High School Art Department and teaching the school’s yearbook production class. Prado currently teaches as an adjunct instructor of art at Amarillo College, Amarillo, Texas.

In her art, Prado explores identity and uses methods in which additive and subtractive substrates act as a metaphor for her Mexican-American identity.
