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.

Majoring in Studio Art

The program in studio art is designed to help students formulate and develop a personal vision. In order to accomplish this goal, courses focus on skills that allow students to express themselves successfully through visual, verbal, and written means. Upon declaring the studio art major, students designate an area of concentration for advanced-level work. This may be in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, digital art, or a combination of any of these media. For the studio art major, senior year is devoted to the St. Mary's Project in studio art, which includes written and oral presentations of the student's research and artistic development, and culminates in an exhibition of a body of work in the Boyden Gallery.
