Education and Outreach Coordinator | megan@reduxstudios.org

A South Carolina native, Megan grew up in Columbia, SC before going off to college in the upstate.  Earning her first two degrees in Education (BSc) and Liberal Arts (MLA) from Winthrop University, Megan then began to pursue her visual art studies.  From 2004-2005, she studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City before transferring to the Savannah College of Art & Design in Atlanta, GA where she completed her BFA in Illustration in 2007. Upon graduation, Megan combined her passions for art and education, and began teaching art at the elementary and high school levels while working freelance in the fields of illustration and graphic design.  In 2011, she returned to SC, moving to Charleston. In Charleston, she continued to teach at the elementary, high school, and college levels, while also working to complete her MFA in Illustration with SCAD in 2016.  Her MFA culminated with a thesis show at Redux’s own Conolly Gallery in Spring 2016.

Now, with 10+ years of teaching experience behind her, and an SC Certified teacher, “Highly Qualified” in the areas of Early Childhood and Elementary Education (P-5) and Art Education (K-12), also certified in Advanced Placement Studio Art, and an active member of the NAEA, the National Art Education Association, Megan has joined Redux as the Education and Outreach Coordinator.
