Mr. Rodrigues has been teaching at CCSF since 1972. He has been an art educator for over 33 years and began teaching at the age of 18.

His goal for the contemporary artist is the development of skills based on a re-visiting of traditional painting techniques -while at the same time developing a contemporary aesthetic that allows the student experimentation in the combination of those acquired skills to one's contemporary ideas and times. In this way the artist/student is encouraged in the development of his or her personal ideas.

Mr. Rodrigues has been teaching Painting, Design, Figure Drawing, Intermediate Drawing Printmaking and Museum Drawing at CCSF. The Museum Drawing class he created is the only class in the state of California that offers 6 transferable credits in Museum drawing and Post Modern applications of appropriation in drawing.

Mr. Rodrigues has been involved in the CCSF Diego Rivera committee and the Art Club. He also is coordinator of the San Francisco Art Institute College Scholarship.

In addition, he has worked as a Free lance Illustrator for McGraw Hill Books and illustrated 5 books, also serving as the Art Director for these projects.
