Art Department - Mrs. Krentz

Mrs. Krentz is a graduate of LPHS and is enjoying her 8th year teaching art at her favorite high school. She received her B.A. in Fine Arts at Indiana University in Bloomington where she specialized in Drawing, Painting, and Silversmithing. She has previously taught art at Le Mans Academy, worked as a layout artist in a publishing company, and has been a conservation artist for a nationally known fine arts company.

Mrs. Krentz loves working with high school artists, and enjoys the creative energy they bring to the classroom and to their projects each day. She bonds very well to her students because of her caring and fun personality. She also uses her unique teaching skills to bring out the artist side of her students, and she works hard to help them show their true selves.

Since she loved teaching and helping other artists, she helped start a local artists' group called Land of Lakes Art Alliance. This group was made to help local artists of all ages connect and to be able to communicate, share their knowledge, and provide a forum for showing their work locally. She is also sponsor of Art Club, with her colleague Mrs. Lebo, and has coached Academic Decathlon and Academic Super Bowl Teams in art topics. When not at LPHS, Mrs. Krentz enjoys drawing, gardening, working in community theater, volunteering, and spending time with her husband and daughters.
