Lynne Horoschak is the Program Manager of the MA in Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Populations at Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia. This one-of-a-kind program was launched in 2009 and continues as a hybrid Online + On-Campus in summer 2014. The Graduate Program sponsors an annual Art and Special Education Symposium, which features nationally known keynote speakers on relevant and current topics and provides the opportunity for art educators and all people who care for people with disabilities to share challenges and successes.
Lynne taught art in the School District of Philadelphia for 36 years before being appointed Chair of Art Education at Moore and subsequently the Manager of the Graduate Program. Recently, Lynne received the Outstanding Pennsylvania Higher Education Art Educator Award, the Picasso Award from the Public Citizens for Children and Youth, and the Bob and Penny Fox Distinguish Professor Award from Moore College of Art & Design. She is president of the Special Needs Art Education (SNAE) issues group of the National Art Education Association (NAEA) and has presented nationally and regionally. In 2012, Lynne co-authored a White Paper with Beverly Levett Gerber entitled An Attack on the Tower of Babel: Creating a National Arts/Special Education Resource Center for The Intersection of Arts Education and Special Education and in 2013 co-authored a paper with two Moore graduate alumni entitled Reflections on Moore College of Art and Design’s Master’s Degree Program in Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Populations, both published by the Kennedy Center.
