Youth-based Outreach at Redux

Redux’s youth-focused outreach programs introduce underserved children and youth to the arts. By partnering with other organizations that serve local youth we can dramatically increase our impact on the community.

Our signature project: Inspirational Pathways at Sanders-Clyde Creative Arts School

Other projects and partners: MUSC, HeartSC, Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center,  John L. Dart Library, Artist & Craftsman Supply, Camp Hope at Sanders-Clyde Creative Arts School; Metanoia Project at Chicora Elementary, Enough Pie, Gibbes Museum of Art, University School of the Lowcountry; previous partners include YMCA, Boys and Girls Club, Girl Scouts, Yo! Arts, and Charleston County School District.

School Tours
Please contact Megan Collier-Bansil to arrange a free school tour during one of our exhibitions. Please give at least 4 weeks notice; subject to availability.

Our outreach efforts are tailored to the needs of each organization.

For some, we send qualified instructors and high quality materials to schools; for others, we welcome groups to tour Redux, meet our studio artists, and offer hands-on workshops. If you are interested in partnering with Redux, please contact Executive Director, Cara Leepson at, or Education & Outreach Coordinator, Megan Collier-Bansil at

By participating in Redux’s Outreach Programs children and youth develop self confidence, leadership skills, and positive relationships with peers and adults. Students are encouraged and required to talk about their artwork while they are creating it, as well as upon completion. By talking with their peers, they develop self assurance and integrate language into their art. Small class sizes also help the students establish a personal relationship with the instructor; giving them a positive role model and helping them become comfortable communicating with adults. Students learn to respect their environment, classmates, instructor(s), and materials in their classes.

Redux’s Outreach Program is possible thanks to the support of the South Carolina Arts Commission, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelly Foundation, and thanks to the community support from individual donors and organizations.
