(Philadelphia, PA) Lynne Horoschak ’66, graduate program director for the MA in Art Education with an emphasis in special populations, has been honored with the Kassandara Madison Arts Education Leadership Award at the 2010 Picasso Project Grant Awards.

The Picasso Project, an arts advocacy program of Public Citizens for Children and Youth, presented Horoschak with the award on February 3 at World Café Live, acknowledging her longstanding service as an art teacher in the public schools, her dedication as an educator of art teachers, as well as her advocacy and support of teaching art to students with special needs.

Horoschak also received a grant from the Picasso Project.

In an e-mail nominating her for the award, Joyce Millman, adjunct faculty of art education, praised Horoschak’s work in establishing a Saturday art class for special needs students, starting the master’s program in art education which she now heads at Moore, and arranging a recent art education symposium attended by 150 teachers from all over Philadelphia and beyond.

“To put it simply, Lynne is a brilliant and tireless advocate for the arts, especially arts and students with special needs,” Millman said.
