Mr. Matthew Sallack

Hello there!

My name is Matthew Gordon Sallack. This is my first year teaching art at McMath Middle School! I hold a BFA in Graphic Design from Texas State University-San Marcos and an MFA in Illustration from Academy of Art University in San Francisco. My love for art goes back to when I was 2 years old, drawing my first illustrations. I am involved with the art scene at Denton including organizing art shows and markets. Organizations I am affiliated with outside of school are: Denton Community Market, The DIME Store, Keep Denton Beautiful, SCRAP Denton, and several others. I also practice art outside the classroom as a freelance illustrator/professional artist. My philosophy for teaching involves teaching students about core art concepts and letting them learn experientially. In my class we will utilize several media both in 2-D and 3-D. My favorite art media are pencil, pen, watercolor, and printmaking!
