Lifetime Achievement Award

June Krinsky-Rudder – Revere Public Schools

A past president of the Massachusetts Art Education Association, and past VP for the Eastern Region of the National Art Education Association, June Krinsky-Rudder is now retired from Revere High School, where she taught for 20 years. Prior to that, she taught for three years at the Home for Little Wanderers – Knight’s Children’s Center in Jamaica Plain, MA. She also taught for three years in Bellport, NY.

June has been working in her new studio in East Boston, where she co-founded the East Boston Artists Group with two other artists. Much of her subject matter is inspired by water, and what she sees as ‘universal structures’, evident in both microorganisms and the overall composition of the planet. She has recently been making more issues-oriented art as well. 

Her favorite part of teaching art was being privileged to observe ‘Aha moments’ experienced by her students, as well as mentoring two assistant teachers and seventeen student teachers during her career. Another favorite thing? Her replacement at Revere High School is one of her former students!
