Jill La Grange
Jill La Grange has been an art educator for the past 25 years. La Grange is passionate about nurturing within students a lifelong love of Art and learning and encouraging them to find joy and a personal voice through their art making. Jill LaGrange’s student art experiences reach beyond the traditional “four wall” classroom environment. Students are encouraged and challenged to integrate their art forms and appreciation of art into school, community, state and national art venues. Her students have created an all-school gallery, known as art(CADE), a Nature and Fitness Trail, a 35’ by 40’ mosaic labyrinth, community art gallery (Gallery 113), an interactive map mural and have won various local, state and national awards.
Moreover, she has been recognized by her peers as the Wisconsin Art Educator of the Year and has served as the Wisconsin Art Education Association President, Webmaster and Membership Chair.
