Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Sachs 

Sachsheadshot

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.

In Design Workshop with Caitlin Sullivan

 Adobe In-Design is an industry standard program for publishing and graphic design. Programs such as Blurb use In-Design plug-ins to create ready-to-print books and other publications. This is great for anyone interested in graphic design and advertising as it is a requirement for most professional enterprises in these fields. It also could benefit anyone interested in self-publishing or beautifying pamphlets and other physical media meant for distribution. 
Presentation: 3 hour workshop open to students, faculty, and staff. Held in Baltimore Hall and Registration is required.
