Join the Friends of African American Art & Culture (FAAAC) virtually for the fifth edition of Sip N’ Scribble, a soulful coloring book party. Relax with friends and/or family, enjoy a beverage of your choice, and color pages illustrated by two of South Carolina’s very own talented artists, Ija Charles and Damion Johnson. As you color the artists’ illustrations, enjoy an interview with both artists to learn more about them as well as their illustrations.
Illustration packets (i.e., both artists’ illustrations) will be made available to print online and will be available for pick up from the Columbia Museum of Art (CMA). Coloring pencils will be provided to the first 100 persons to pick up an illustration packet at the CMA front desk. Illustration packets will be limited to two (2) packets per person.
Ija’s works have been featured on several medias and platforms. Ija’s most recent media wave centers around her artwork included within the NFL Artist Replay initiative, which features the artwork of 17 black, indigenous people of color from around the world. You can also find Ija’s work of captivating murals vibrating from the walls of several buildings throughout Columbia and Cayce, SC.
Damion’s work lives throughout SC. Damion’s inspirational “Injustice Ends” mural in Orangeburg, SC made its way across media platforms recently given its message of unity, hope, and power. Damion’s work has also been included in SC’s own ArtFields Competition. You can also find Damion’s enchanting work on full display in school hallways within the state as he has painted multiple murals/discovery walls which are not only vibrant and fascinating but also educational for students.
