The Cuban artist Belkis Ayón created uniquely textured artwork using the printmaking technique of collography in which different types of materials are collaged onto a piece of cardboard and then run through a press with paper. After exploring Ayón’s artwork, workshop participants will create their own collographs using a variety of textured materials such as sandpaper, fabric, foam, and string.
