From June 11 – 29, 2012, Redux will host The Summer Art Institute (SAI). This educational program is presented in cooperation with the Charleston County School District (CCSD) and is for thirty high school students who exhibit exceptional talent in the visual arts. Selected students will have three weeks of intense training in painting, printmaking, and photography. Students will also have the opportunity to work with professional artists and exhibit their artwork in the Charleston community. This year’s instructors are Tony Csavas, Shannon Di, and Elizabeth Stephenson.
Each student who completes the program will have a portfolio prepared for applications to college, Advanced Placement Art Classes, and Governor’s School. Work from each student will be selected for the Charleston County School District collection and will be retained for two years. This collection will be on public display to further the student’s professional experience.
The Summer Art Institute students’ work will be displayed in the Redux gallery from July 21 – 28, 2012. Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, July 21, 6-9pm. Admission will be free.
