Hello, my name is Matt Ackerman and I am very honored to be the art teacher at OHI. I am originally from Ohio, my wife teaches in the district, and our three children attend Oak Harbor schools. I received my B.A. in Art Education from WWU and my M.A. in Art Education from Boston University. My art program will be focusing on the Elements of Art and the Principles of design. We will explore a number of mediums, from graphite, paint, origami, to paper making and clay. I will be transitioning the 5th graders into middle school art and preparing the 6th graders for Junior High and beyond.
