Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Sachs 


Sarah received her BA in Studio Art from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2006. In 2008, she received her Masters of Art in Digital Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, and in 2009 she received her Masters of Fine Art in Photography and Digital Imaging, also from Maryland Institute College of Art. Through her fine art work, Sarah explores the dichotomy between human and digital memory, how the two influence one another, and how they are affected by natural and technological elements of decay. She hopes to create a dialogue about the relationships between personal memory, society’s collective memory, and collective cultural identity.

ART 208: Introduction to Sculpture                    back to courses index
Lisa Scheer 

This course is an introduction to making sculpture. Working with the human form as a starting point, students will be asked to first focus on the elements of line and plane to create a constructed sculpture in wood and or metal. A second project will focus on the human form as volume. Students will make sculptures utilizing armature construction and or carving techniques. Class activities will include design generation activities such as drawing and model making, looking at related art works in slide lectures, material and construction demonstrations, studio work time, and critiques.

No prerequisite. This course satisfies the core curriculum requirement in the arts.
