9 - Daniel Sachs Artist Interview
Samantha Meeker interviews Daniel Sachs, an Atlanta based artist. Daniel Sachs is almost entirely a self-taught artist. Disgruntled with the approach to studio classes as an undergraduate, he quickly switched his major to art history, as a freshman. He received his B.A. in art history from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1978, specializing in Renaissance and Baroque painting and sculpture. Following his undergraduate studies, he attended the Boston Museum School, one of only three schools in the nation that offered a course called â€œTechniques of the Old Masters,â€ and then did an independent study in oil painting with John Burns (Unlike most little boys who dream of being astronauts or firemen, Sachs dreamed of being an artist from the time that he was old enough to wield a pencil). Following this period in his life, Sachs worked as a freelance illustrator in New York City after moving there in 1981 and then returned to his studies in art history at Hunter College of the City University of New York in 1987, where he received his M.A. in art history, concentrating on American Watercolor Painting, in 1990. He then went on to complete is Ph.D. in art history at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, specializing in nineteenth-century American landscape painting, but he continued to practice his art. Today he is an Assistant Professor of Art History at Kennesaw State University and also teaches a four-cycle course called Historical Studio Practices in which he teaches the students an art historical period.
