In this workshop we will explore a range of monotype techniques from Blackfield Manner to Rainbow Rolls using both subtractive and additive strategies. Working to develop the "ghost print" we will add collage elements in combination and move towards mixed media including pastel, watercolor and colored pencil. The emphasis will be an intuitive approach with a focus on the artist as the inventor. All levels are welcome.


ROBERT RHOADES received his BA in Art from Duke University and MFA from the University of New Mexico in Printmaking. He has been a full-time art instructor for 40 years. The last 30 years were as Art Deparment coordinator at College of the Redwoods in Fort Bragg where he developed a program in printmaking, with monotype and monoprint figuring significantly in this. In the summer of 2000, he studied non-toxic printmaking in Grand Prairie, Canada, where he learned several techniques to modify his printmaking program at the College of the Redwoods. His work has been shown in museums and galleries in Japan, Europe, and across the United States.
