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 308: Advanced Sculpture                     back to courses index
Lisa Scheer

This is an intermediate level studio class for students who have taken at least one previous course in sculpture but it is not necessarily a class for sculptors only. This course has a number of goals. The first is to broaden student's idea of art beyond making objects including issues such as process, interactivity, installation, site, and time-based formats. Familiarity with these ideas will occur both via studio activities (four quick-paced projects) and studying contemporary art and theory. Reading, research, and discussions will introduce a variety of contemporary artists working in these expanded modes.

This course may be repeated once for credit. Prerequisite: ART 105 or ART 208
