On Thursday, May 3, 2024, muralist Ija Charles graciously shared details about her life and career as an artist and her advice for our own Blue Devil artists. They loved that she thrifts a pair of overalls to wear when creating her murals, and that they are eventually auctioned off at Columbia Museum of Art.
    Ms. Charles held three sessions with our Blue Devil artists:
    Art 3 Honors- Observation and Q&A;
    Photography- Photo session and Q&A;
    National Art Honor Society- “Meet the Artist” after school reception with Q&A, photo session, and small group discussions.
    Ms. Charles's mural is being funded by both Dreher and the Dreher Foundation.  Art teacher Katie Pfrommer arranged for the this opportunity for our school.
