In celebration of 17 years of service as a P.S. ARTS Teaching Artist and coach, we want to introduce you to June Edmonds.
June began teaching Visual Arts to students in the Lawndale Elementary School District in 2004. Her talent for crafting curriculum and exposing students to a diverse cadre of art and artists is reflected in the overwhelming praise she receives from school administrators, classroom teachers, parents, and the young artists she inspires. As one teacher at William Anderson Elementary noted, “She ignites [students’] passion and curiosity in the arts.”
In addition to her tenure as a Teaching Artist and Arts Integration Coach, June is an award-winning painter whose work has been featured in galleries, museums, and public spaces throughout the United States.
She is stepping away from the classroom this year to focus on exciting opportunities, including her latest project: a three-story mural in La Jolla titled “Ebony on Draper and Girard.” We want to send a big congratulations to June and thank her for 17 inspiring years.
