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.

Lisa Scheer

This applied theory course explores the development of effective presentation materials by which studio artists contextualize, articulate and document the intentions of their own creative work. Course activities include learning how to write effective visual analysis and artist statements, photograph and digitally document artworks, create on-line portfolios, and prepare a variety of professional presentation materials such as résumés and letters of application. Course work culminates with students creating their own on-line portfolio.
