Education + Student Engagement Co-Chair
Diane Zatz is currently serving as an Adjunct Instructor in Design and Merchandising and Digital Media at Drexel University, and in the Department of Advertising, the School of Media and Communication at Temple University. She is a former Associate Professor of Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Before a pivotal career shift to full-time teaching, Diane freelanced and was a partner in a full-service studio, Amalgamation House, Inc. with her animator/professor husband. She learned to design on the job–having graduated from Tyler School of Art with a BFA in Painting and Temple University with a M.Ed in English. Teaching continues to be an exciting learning experience. Spare-time activities include pastel portraits, hand-sewn dolls, and hops farming. Diane joined the Education Committee of AIGAPhilly four years ago and loves seeing former students taking on leadership roles in the community.
