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.

Carrie Patterson

This applied theory course explores the history of and motivations behind our use of color as it relates to art objects. It is an intermediate studio art class that integrates historical and contemporary color theory with studio art projects. Working with water-based paint and collage, students will apply what they learn to a series of studio projects. Groups discussions, critiques, and written assignments will reflect class readings including literature, theory, historical texts, and artist statements.
